Clece wins Randstad award for integration
- Clece was the winner in the Business category for contributing to the incorporation of 1,163 people at risk of exclusion in 2013.
- Red Cross, Gestiona Radio and the Paralympic champion David Casinos also received recognition at the ninth Randstad Awards.
28 May 2014. The Randstad Foundation has recognised the work of Clece at the ninth Randstad Awards ceremony. The awards are presented each year to businesses, media outlets, institutions and professionals for projects and initiatives helping people from socially vulnerable collectives achieve integration.
Clece was the winner in the Business category, for its social commitment to equal opportunities and its policies in 2013 to help secure the integration of people from disadvantaged social groups in 2013. In 2013 the company took on 585 people with disabilities, 357 people in situations of social exclusion and 221 women who have been victims of gender-based violence. The current Clece workforce of more than 68,000 people, therefore, now has 4,317 workers from socially vulnerable collectives.
The award was for the company’s commitment to the employability of these professionals, through awareness-raising initiatives, which have broken down stereotypes and prejudices among the workforce. Clece has thus become a point of social reference in the way that the company balances its economic profitability with its policy of social sustainability and equal opportunities at work.
Cristóbal Valderas, Managing Director of Clece, thanked the Foundation for the award, adding that “helping people from socially vulnerable groups find work requires involvement and effort from everyone”, and in so doing dedicated the award “to all those who, day in and day out, work on the challenge of securing integration”.
The Randstad Foundation assesses and rewards initiatives that stand out for developing social responsibility policies, collaboration projects with other organisations, social initiatives implemented for employees, helping people from disadvantaged social groups find work, and measures to help people find the right balance between work and family life, among others. As well as Clece, the Red Cross, Gestiona Radio and the Paralympic champion David Casinos also received awards.
