Testimony from signatories
The Dow Chemical Company
Active participation in the Global Business & Disability Network is critically important. It is a platform to share best practices between companies that will help close the equal opportunity gap for people with a disability and ensure that all employees can achieve their full potential. This is not only the right thing to do; it also makes good business sense.
I would like to say to you that we at Orange take this very seriously, because when it comes to quality of life and disability in the workplace, making each of us feel good makes everyone feel better.
Today, our ability to foster the development of people with disabilities benefits all our talents. It represents the social and economic performance lever for the Casino Group as a whole. It is with this conviction that we sign the ILO Charter to encourage other large economic agents to engage in this path.
Adecco is a founding member of the ILO Global Business & Disability Network and we are very proud, that with the signing of the Business Charter on Disability today, and in cooperation with our other network members, we will carry on with the work we have done so far on workplace inclusion and achieve ‘better work, better life’ for all.
Standard Bank is very pleased to put our name to the ILO Business Charter on Disability. Signing the Charter enables us to reconfirm our corporate values, and particularly our commitments to serving our customers to the best of our ability, growing our people to their greatest potential, and respecting each other in all our diversity. Being a Charter signatory will undoubtedly improve our ability to attract and retain the best human capital.
To allow people with disabilities to reveal their true talent, to succeed at every level and to reach their full potential, L’Oréal needs to push the limits in this domain. The inclusion of disability in the workplace is a top priority for L’Oréal.
At AXA we are actively engaged in attracting and retaining diverse talents. We are committed to creating an accessible and inclusive environment in order to broaden our talent pool while being agile, innovative and customer-oriented. People with disabilities are people with skills and attributes that are of value to us. By signing this Charter we commit to action on an international scale to focus specifically on being inclusive of people with disabilities, both current and future employees.
This charter is a complete expression of our commitment on disability in our workplace. Disability is one of my first engagement with Talent and one of the four priorities formalized in our group’s commitment to diversity as a lever for performance and innovation. Our participation in the ILO’s allows us to share the good practices of our partner companies in this initiative.
