ISS has been awarded a Global Impact Sourcing Award (GISA) by IAOP and The Rockefeller Foundation for providing career and development opportunities to people who otherwise have limited prospects for sustainable employment.
The global facility services provider was recognised for its investment in diversity and inclusion, in particular in the Netherlands where ISS has a dedicated Inclusion Department consisting of Inclusion managers, internal job coaches, and on the job trainers.
Joseph Nazareth, Head of ISS Group Health, Safety & Environment and Corporate Responsibility, commented: “Our responsibility to both our own people and the people we serve is core to our DNA.
“We have a proud heritage of fairness, equality and inclusion, providing opportunities for people who otherwise might have difficulties entering – and staying on – the job market. But we are also on a journey to strengthen our diversity and inclusion. In addition to our many successful local initiatives around the world, we are driving a global agenda in 2020 that aims to tackle gender balance in leadership.”
Across the globe ISS invests in social innovation projects in cooperation with regional labor markets, local and national government and other entities. These projects have generated significant added value to ISS customers, employees and their families, and benefits for society as a whole.
The award will be presented to ISS at the 2020 Outsourcing World Summit (OWS20) in Orlando, Florida on 18 February.
