Henkel Iberica and the Fupar Foundation integrate disabled people
Henkel Iberica promotes projects that improves the lives of disadvantaged groups of people. Committed to the core values of diversity and inclusion, Henkel’s Spanish subsidiary works closely with social non-profit organizations such as the Fupar Foundation (Foundation President Amat Roumens).
Henkel and the Fupar Foundation believe in the importance of employment as a tool of social integration. That is why, for more than 10 years, Henkel Iberica has been giving members of the foundation the opportunity to join the Henkel production line team at the company’s plant in Montornés del Vallés.
Since 2005, nine employees from the foundation have been working daily in the adhesives section of the Henkel plant in Montornés del Vallés. Twice a week another group of four people takes care of the plant’s garden.
In addition to the work at the Henkel offices, Pattex and Pritt products have been packaged at the Fupar Foundation’s facilities for more than 20 years.
Workplace diversity and an inclusive company culture are vital for Henkel’s success worldwide. The company’s diversity is represented explicitly via diverse cultures, generations and gender and implicitly in individual skills, experience, attitudes, values and ways of thinking.
