Testimonies from signatories
As a socially responsible company, Veolia is working for the diversity of its teams and for the inclusion of all. I am proud to sign the Charter of the ILO Global Business and Disability Network, which is fully in line with our values of respect, responsibility and solidarity. Promoting the employment of people with disabilities and supporting our colleagues who have a physical or mental disability is a concrete expression of these values. By joining the ILO Global Business and Disability Network, we are reaffirming our ambition to guarantee equal treatment throughout their careers.
People with disabilities continue to face widespread discrimination, rejection and isolation. It’s something which we have the power to stop. For business, this means finding ways to improve our recruitment, retention, and development of colleagues who have a disability. Doing so will allow us to unlock the potential that is trapped in this often overlooked pool of talent. We have signed the ILO’s Global Business and Disability Network Charter to reaffirm our commitment to promoting equal treatment and opportunities for all and to help build a better, more inclusive society.
Companies are finally waking up to the fact that different abilities mean different perspectives, different intuitions, different results, which make our businesses stronger. We at ISS know this to be true. This is why we signed the ILO Global Business and Disability Network Charter. Through this, we’ve committed to promoting equal treatment and equal opportunities for people with disabilities, adapting our company premises for greater accessibility, advocating for the employment of people with disabilities in partner companies, and transparently sharing our progress with other signatories.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
