The Sorigué group certified its inclusion policies by being awarded the Bequal PLUS Seal from the Bequal Foundation
. This certificate assesses the legal compliance of companies with regard to people with disabilities — e.g. that 2% of jobs in companies with more than 50 employees be reserved for people with disabilities — and the effective integration of inclusive policies in the different areas of a company.
Sorigué’s commitment to hiring and advancing the careers of people with disabilities is part of its responsible business model. Being awarded the Bequal PLUS Seal shows the group’s commitment to continuing to work towards integration beyond legal requirements, with a 3% share target.
2019 was the first time Sorigué became Bequal certified, when it was awarded the Standard seal. When renewing this seal in July 2022, the company showed that it had continually improved all the indicators assessed by the seal: strategy and leadership, HR management, accessibility, responsible procurement, customers, social actions and communication.
Sorigué conducts a variety of internal, staff-wide awareness campaigns. In this sense, a fine example comes from one of the group’s companies, Acsa, Obras e Infraestructuras, which in 2021 directly employed 20 more people with disabilities compared to the previous period.
