“We want to be a company of total trust for society, and therefore we feel committed to return what we receive from it.”
We are dedicated to the labor and social inclusion of people at risk of exclusion.
The integration of people at risk of social exclusion and, specifically, of people with different abilities, has been for several years the hallmark and main identity symbol of our Company.
Currently, 12% of our employees come from groups at risk of social exclusion or with difficulties in accessing employment. We have three Special Employment Centers and a labor enclave in Spain. More than 70% of the people who work in them, in positions related to production, warehouse, logistics, supply and general services, have some kind of functional diversity.
Our commitment also materializes in various collaborations. In 2017 we renewed with the ONCE Foundation, for the third year in a row since 1998, the Inserta Agreement. In addition, we continue our collaboration with the Royal Disability Board, the Higher Sports Council (CSD) and the Spanish Paralympic Committee (CPE).
We consider it essential to continue moving towards an inclusive and, therefore, sustainable society for all, supporting sports and Paralympic athletes, thus reinforcing our commitment to overcoming, discipline, equal opportunities, effort and perseverance. Therefore, in 2018 we renewed our sponsorship of the Spanish Paralympic Team for the Tokyo 2020 Games, just as we did in the Rio de Janeiro Games in 2016.
Disability Confident Employer
In 2018, Cerealto Siro Foods became one of the first companies to be recognised as a Disability Confident Leader in the United Kingdom, a scheme launched by the Department for Work and Pensions to incentivise the hiring of people from these groups.
After obtaining the “Committed (Level 1)” award, at Cerealto Siro Foods we have internationalized this initiative, transferring it to the rest of our work centers located in Spain, Portugal, Italy and Mexico.
The Valuable 500, is an initiative that aims to include equal opportunities and integration of people with disabilities in the global business leadership agenda, after its launch at the annual meeting of the World Economic Forum in Davos.
