NUMBER OF DISABLEDWORKERS ON THE PERMANENTWORKFORCE – BIC GROUP
BIC strives to use all the means available to engage in dialogue with its team members. In this spirit, it sets up the initiatives on listening to team members as mentioned on page 98. To maintain its team members’ engagement and remain attentive to their expectations, the Group strives to cultivate a high-quality social dialogue, either directly with the management or with the team members themselves, their representatives, or labor union representatives at unionized sites. In every country where the Group has operations, it complies with all applicable collective agreements. In addition, each subsidiary strives, insofar as its resources allow, to improve working conditions by offering wages above the legal minimums, through superior team member benefits, or through investments to improve the working environment. These types of social progress are a subject of prior dialogue, and the team members and their representatives are kept informed to ensure optimal communication. The topics discussed in the negotiations are related either to local obligations or to the previously mentioned management points. For example, many mechanisms to promote safety and health in the workplace have been initiated through social dialogue.
In 2020, disabled workers at the Group’s largest sites totaled 137 (excluding indirect jobs associated with outsourcing). They numbered 68 in Europe, 9 in North America, 54 in Latin America and 6 in the rest of world (Middle East, Africa, India, Oceania, and Asia).
