The Randstad Foundation and Galletas Gulln promote the professional integration of people with diverse abilities in the Palentina Mountains
The Randstad Foundation and Biscuits Gulls sign an alliance to promote the professional integration of people with diverse abilities in the Palentina Mountain region. According to the agreement ratified by the two entities, they will draw up protocols facilitating the integration into the working world of beneficiaries of the Randstad Foundation in the Gulln and VIDA biscuit factories.
People with disabilities in the Palentina Mountain area will be able to access open vacancies in Galletas Gulln manufacturing centers. For the integration into the factories, the Randstad Foundation will monitor the employee, collaborate in the adaptation of the job and monitor his performance and integration into the biscuit factory.
Additionally, in an effort to continue to promote diversity within Galletas Gulln, the Randstad Foundation has prepared a video pill featuring Paralympic swimmer Xavi Torres to raise awareness of disability and the importance of diversity.
The collaboration agreement between the two organizations was brought to life with the signing of the agreement which was led by the director of operations Randstad Inhouse Service, Roco Moncalen – on behalf of Fundacin Randstad – and the managing director of Galletas Gulln , Paco Hevia.
According to Jess Echevarra, President of the Randstad Foundation and CEO Randstad Iberia & Latam, this agreement represents a very positive collaboration between two entities whose objective is to help the integration of people with disabilities into the world of work, which is particularly difficult in such a depopulated country. Just like the Palentina mountain, from the Randstad Foundation we are working on education and training for its promotion of employment and its normalization in society. We work to ensure that talented people with disabilities reach their full employment and social inclusion.
For Paco Hevia, thanks to this agreement with the Randstad Foundation, we have opened up a new framework of opportunities for people with disabilities in the region. In the company, we are committed to the empowerment of people through work and we are strong advocates of the inclusion of work as a tool for integration and elimination of inequalities.
SDG aligned initiatives
By signing the agreement with the Randstad Foundation, Galletas Gulln continues to align its goals with initiatives that contribute to the achievement of the United Nations (UN) Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). In addition, this action is part of the Responsible Business Master Plan and contributes to achieving the following sustainable development goals: SDG8 Decent work and economic growth, SDG10 Reduction of inequalities and SDG17 Partnerships to achieve the goals.
The Aguilarense biscuit company, which directs its activity from a responsible point of view, is strongly committed to the economic and social development of Aguilar de Campoo and the neighboring regions. At the same time, the company is developing activities and forging alliances aimed at protecting the environment, its environment and the social impact linked to its alliances with regional entities and institutions.
