Fundación Adecco and FCC Construction sign agreement for integration of people with disabilities

  • The agreement covers FCC Construction's goal of hiring people with disabilities through Fundación Adecco.
  • The agreement was promoted by Esther Koplowitz.
          

FCC Construction, the FCC subsidiary which handles all its construction business, and Fundación Adecco have signed an agreement to implement social and employment integration programmes for people with disabilities. The agreement runs initially for one year and may be extended each year up to three years by mutual agreement.

The main goal of the agreement is to enable FCC Construction to hire people with disabilities, through Fundación Adecco. The foundation will provide training to the future employees to prepare them for the job, and will monitor their progress in the early months to ensure that they integrate smoothly.

Also, as a fundamental component of FCC Construction's corporate social responsibility policy, Fundación Adecco will implement the Familia plan for disabled members of employees' families. The Familia plan seeks to provide beneficiaries with sufficient personal autonomy and the necessary resources to actively seek employment, and provides training to favour incorporation into society and work as well as leisure and adapted sport activities to foster social integration of people with disabilities.

The agreement, which was promoted by FCC's largest shareholder, Esther Koplowitz, was signed by José Mayor, Chairman of FCC Construction, and Emilio Zurutuza Reigosa, Chairman of Fundación Adecco.
