Clece holds two conferences in Canary Islands to raise awareness among staff regarding disadvantaged collectives
Madrid, April 2014. Clece recently held two conferences at the Canary Islands Regional Division for heads of service and managers with the aim of raising awareness among their teams about helping people from disadvantaged social groups find work.
The conferences, which were held in Tenerife and Las Palmas de Gran Canaria, featured the collaboration of organisations such as the Red Cross, FSC Inserta and the Gender-Based Violence unit of Tenerife Council, who delivered the various speeches to the 29 workers that took part in the initiative.
For Clece, these conferences are about ensuring middle managers with direct responsibility in the hiring process understand the need to help people who due to their social situation find it particularly difficult to access the job market. The initiative forms part of the company’s social commitment to promote equal opportunities for people from vulnerable social groups, such as people with disabilities, people at risk of social exclusion and victims of gender-based violence. This is a major objective for the company, and one that starts with its own staff, for whom Clece periodically organises awareness-raising initiatives.
