INDEVCO Human Resources (HR) executives and Line Managers from across 9 Business Units (BUs) in Lebanon visited Arcenciel in Beirut on 29 November 2019.
Arcenciel provided a tour to 18 HR executives and Line Managers to witness firsthand the effectiveness of people with special needs under plant working conditions.
The objective of the tour was to demonstrate new possibilities for employment of people with disabilities in functions other than administrative and office work.
The visit was part of INDEVCO’s partnership with Arcenciel which also included a workshop in March 2019. The workshop by Arcenciel coached INDEVCO HR and Line Managers on the importance of hiring and including people with disabilities in the workplace.
INDEVCO business units are working to equip facilities and accommodate employees with special needs. INDEVCO’s family currently includes over 30 employees with disabilities in Lebanon.
