Air France plays an active and exemplary role in employing people with disabilities
Air France has been actively committed to promoting the employment of people with disabilities for close to 30 years. The European week for the employment of people with disabilities, which is taking place from November 19 to 25, 2018, is the occasion to highlight that more than 1,800 staff with a disability are currently employed within the company, representing 6.38% of the workforce (including the protected and adapted sector).
In 2018, Air France signed with labour unions its 10th three-year agreement concerning the employment and professional integration of people with disabilities, with as its main ambition that of surpassing the legal recruitment target of 6% of staff with a disability in the long term. This new agreement also provides for the investment of 3.4 million euros to promote the employment of staff with disabilities, representing more than three times the legal contribution.
Beyond the financial aspect, Air France is committed on a daily basis to the following -
To recruit people with disabilities,
To integrate, support and keep these employees in employment by adapting their work station and conditions,
To use the protected and adapted sector,
To raise awareness among managers and staff.
