“We noticed a significant improvement of our TEAM […] and also had great feedback from our customers. Some of them asked about the project and said they will surely come back. […] Any time we shared something about job inclusion on Social Media, the interaction was huge!”
(Axis Hotels’ Manager)
THE VALUEABLE NETWORK
Valueable Network is the European network of socially responsible companies in the hospitality industry. This project has been funded by the Erasmus+ Program of the European Commission since 2014, and is currently present in 8 European countries: Italy, Spain, Portugal, Germany, Hungary, Turkey, Austria and Croatia.
Our main goal? Promoting the labour inclusion of people with intellectual disabilities through the dissemination of targeted placements – apprenticeships and recruitment – in the hospitality sector. Each business can gain an internationally recognised label – bronze, silver or gold – depending on the degree of commitment demonstrated to the inclusion of people with intellectual disabilities in their workforce. It is the Valueable – Handing opportunities trademark, registered in 2018.
Valueable already counts 120 business members in the hospitality sector and has contributed to almost 300 work placements. The language of hospitality knows no boundaries!
Valueable also offers specific tools, such as:
- One app and an adapted version of HACCP safety system course for trainees/workers with intellectual disabilities
- E-learning course for Placement Professionals, and one for hospitality managers
- Videos for valueable employees
Whether you’re a VET provider or a business, there’s a place for you in our community. Join us today!
