FCC supports the International Day of Persons with Disabilities

FCC once again supports the International Day of Persons with Disabilities that will be celebrated on 3 December. There are people with disabilities all over the world and at all levels of society, and equal opportunities constitute an unwavering foundation of all activity at FCC. As such, at FCC we understand that equality means respecting differences and including the most disadvantaged collectives in all areas.

FCC supports the International Day of Persons with Disabilities

FCC remains strongly committed to being a company that is increasingly more inclusive, diverse and socially responsible in all of its management areas and it constantly bolsters its commitment to this collective, promoting actions and projects to foster equality through employment. The training and recruitment of people with disabilities in FCC Equal, which plays a key role in said mission, is just one of the main actions that is being carried out.

Furthermore, FCC promotes different awareness, labour integration, education and entrepreneurship programmes through collaborative relationships with specialised organisations. FCC collaborates with foundations including the Inserta Foundation (a labour integration programme associated with the Once Foundation) and the Prevent Foundation with its “Learn and Start” project. Furthermore, this year FCC has also collaborated with the Adecco Foundation, participating in the Family Plan and joining its international day of disabilities campaign which aims to identify, report and eliminate prejudices in our society.

The Foundation Adecco campaign, which FCC has signed up to, is called “No Limits. React”. The campaign raises awareness of some situations that particularly affect people with functional diversity: overprotection, bullying, discrimination in the workplace and mobbing. These obstacles exist in all areas of life, such as in school, university, work and in the family, and they result in major limitations that condition the development, and social and work integration of those affected.

This goal is perfectly aligned with FCC's ethical and efficient business model, governed by the principles of equality, diversity, integration and sustainability, boosting profitability and productivity in accordance with the UN Declaration on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities.
