Legrand Group commitment to the prevention and recognition of disabilities
A new agreement on the prevention of disabilities and integration of disabled people, covering the 2012-2014 period, has been signed by the Group and the various trade union organisations in France.
This disability recognition approach naturally fits with the Group's sustainable development commitment to "Promote equal opportunities by better reflecting diversity in the management of human resources".
Legrand is strongly committed to initiatives targeting people with disabilities. Major concerns today include ensuring access to sustainable employment, through for example the adaptation of workstations to suit individual requirements. Awareness-raising events are also organised to encourage management to give greater recognition to disabilities, and to enable disabled people to benefit from genuine career management and promotional prospects.
Legrand currently employs 330 employees with disabilities in France, thereby exceeding the legal requirement in this respect.
