The Adecco Foundation and Inclusive Employment

The Adecco Foundation, a not-for-profit organization founded in 1999 by The Adecco Group in Spain, works towards the inclusion of people with disabilities in the workforce and in their communities. The Foundation trains people with disabilities and helps them to find employment; works towards the transformation of society to recognize the dignity and valor of all people; and works with business to design inclusive workplaces and culture. For people with disabilities, the Foundation provides assistance in finding accessible and inclusive employment through an employment portal and training programs. For employers, the Foundation provides information on diversity and inclusion in the workplace of people with disabilities and creates a dialogue to help remove stigma and stereotypes in the workplace. Parents of children with disabilities may, through the Family Plan, help their children begin to develop the skills they need for their autonomy and employment. The Foundation also provides a calendar that discusses each month one of the Foundation’s 12 steps towards the full inclusion of people with disabilities. Finally, those interested in the Foundation and its services may stay informed through the Foundation’s Newsroom.
