ADP aims to educate its 2,300 employees in France on the subject of disability, beginning with a poster campaign organized on various sites where types of disability and beneficiaries, the key figures at ADP, and the flagship measures of the company agreement will be highlighted.
Since 2010, four Handicap agreements have been signed with trade union organizations, including actions in favor of recruitment, integration, job retention, and awareness raising. A dedicated structure has been set up, the “Mission Handicap”, attached to the Human Resources Department and represented by a national handicap referent and a local handicap referent at each of the nine sites in France.
The assessment of the 3rd Handicap agreement (2016-2018) shows that 96% of employees know the company's Handicap Mission and 85% are aware of the communication and awareness-raising actions deployed on the theme of disability.
ADP has been carrying out an active employment and integration policy for people with disabilities since 2010. The results of the third agreement are very positive: the employment rate fell from 3.16% in 2015 to 4.31% in 2018. Our desire with the signing of this 4th agreement is to continue supporting employees with disabilities on a daily basis and to recruit new ones.Nolwenn Gourven, Social Relations and CSR Manager, ADP France
Recruit and train people with disabilities
To promote the professional integration of people with disabilities, ADP has been committed since 2010 to the recruitment of professional contracts combining training days and presence within the company. This system ultimately makes it possible to have fully operational employees. Since 2010, nearly 100 work-study participants have participated in these sessions.
In November 2018, ADP received the Michel Berthomé prize, "Coup de Coeur" from the jury for the work-study training of 9 employees with disabilities, on the Carquefou site from October 2017 to October 2018. Recruitment as well as the support for professionalization contracts within ADP were key elements in the awarding of this prizeAurélie Hallouin, Social Responsibility Officer, ADP
Retention of disabled workers
Guaranteeing good support for employees means understanding their needs and offering them suitable solutions. On-site job studies and adjustments are therefore offered to all employees with disabilities. More than 50 job studies have been carried out since 2016.
In addition to the flexibility of the schedules granted to ADP employees and the possibility of teleworking on a regular basis with an arrangement of the work station at home, employees with disabilities partially benefit from a maintenance of full rate pension contributions financed by the company. In addition, ADP has chosen to grant paid absence days for employees with disabilities or employees whose spouse or child has a disability, as well as funding for related equipment with disability, or taking charge of certain consultations.
In order to better understand disability on a daily basis and challenge prejudices, ADP carries out awareness-raising actions on the subject of disability among all its employees.
85% of managers have undergone awareness training combining workshops, quizzes, advice and scenarios, with a target of 100% by next summer. 94% of the managers trained recognized that awareness-raising contributes to changing attitudes towards disability.
