The Valuable 500
ISS has joined The Valuable 500 movement of leading corporates committed to putting disability on the business leadership agenda.
Launched in 2019, initially to target 500 major national and multinational private sector companies, the campaign is raising awareness about the social and economic value of the estimated 1.3 billion people who live with disabilities around the world.
With its commitment to The Valuable 500, ISS is building on ongoing efforts to provide more career opportunities and greater workplace inclusivity, which have already seen 5.5 per cent of the company’s vacancies in Spain (or some 30,633 posts) taken by people with disabilities – a target that will increase to 6.1 per cent by 2023, and the introduction of partnerships with secondary schools and NGOs in Hong Kong to provide training, career opportunities and buddy support for youth with special educational needs.
Group CEO, Jacob Aarup-Andersen, comments: “I’m proud for ISS to join other top brands in The Valuable 500 group and amplify our global commitment to providing opportunities for people living with disabilities. We are a people company built upon dignity and respect.
“With our focus on social mobility and inclusion at the global and executive level, we can offer meaningful career paths and inclusive workplaces for many of the 1.3 billion-plus people across the world who live with some form of disability, not only helping people grow professionally but also unlocking value for our customers and society at large.”
