Orange SA employs more than 5,200 employees with disabilities who are supported, from their inclusion into the company to the accessibility of their work environment. For many years, Orange has been committed to a more inclusive and sustainable society where differences are a source of wealth for the community.
On the occasion of the International Day of Persons with Disabilities, Orange has put online a film based on the testimonials of employees directly or indirectly impacted by disability in their work environment. This film follows a call for testimonials that was launched in early 2019. It is a film made by employees, with employees and to raise employee awareness about disability.
Through this action, Orange seeks to change the way we look at differences and to highlight the different forms of disability. This film was also developed by showing the constraints related to the current health crisis. Indeed, wearing a mask is an additional barrier for some disabled employees.
Orange has also set up a podcast “Au bout du fil” in three episodes. The aim of which is to decipher the new trends in the digital world and their impact on disability in the workplace.
These actions are part of Orange’s contribution to the achievement of Sustainable Development Goal 10.
On the International Day of Persons with Disabilities, Orange adopted the new GSMA principles to make digital a lever for the inclusion of persons with disabilities. Orange is also a member of the worldwide movement The Valuable 500. The Orange Group implements communication campaigns and awareness-raising events to fight against disability discrimination, removing obstacles to integration and job retention.
