Global Impact Sourcing Award (GISA)
ISS has been recognised with a Global Impact Sourcing Award (GISA) by IAOP and The Rockefeller Foundation for hiring and providing career development opportunities to people who would otherwise have limited prospects for sustainable employment.
The award recognises the global facility services provider for embracing diversity and inclusion in its HR policies, particularly in the Netherlands - where the company has established a dedicated "Inclusion Department".
Joseph Nazareth, Head of ISS Group Health, Safety & Environment and Corporate Responsibility, explains:
“Our responsibility to both our own people and the people we serve is core to our DNA.
"We have a proud heritage of fairness, equality and inclusion, providing opportunities for people who otherwise might have difficulties entering – and staying on – the job market. But we are also on a journey to strengthen our diversity and inclusion. In addition to our many successful local initiatives around the world, we are driving a global agenda in 2020 that aims to tackle gender balance in leadership."
Across the globe, ISS invests in social innovation projects in cooperation with regional labor markets, local and national government and other entities. These projects have generated significant added value to ISS customers, employees and their families, and benefits for society as a whole.
The GISA presentation ceremony will take place on 18 February at the Outsourcing World Summit (OWS20) in Orlando, Florida.
