"They didn't ask me what was wrong with me, but what I needed," says VodafoneZiggo colleague Michele de Vries. He is in a wheelchair, but according to him that has never been an issue: not in the application process nor since he started working at VodafoneZiggo. "The wheelchair is not a problem for me, but the company has never made it an issue."
People at a distance from the labour market do not always find it easy to find a fulfilling job. "VodafoneZiggo wants to change this with concrete objectives," says Pim Brouwers of the Diversity & Inclusion department. The company sees the inclusion of these people not only as a participation law under the heading 'Social Return on Investment' (SROI). "We think it's important to offer everyone opportunities."
"That is why we create full-fledged jobs every year for people at a distance from the labour market," Pim continues. "Jobs where they are part of official teams and thus make a valuable contribution to our organization."
