“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
The Valueable network is the European network of socially responsible companies of the hospitality sector. It has been created within the Erasmus + “On my own…at work” project, financed by the European Commission in 2014-2017.
During those years, a group of disability associations, universities, hotels and one foundation for equal opportunities designed, developed and tested the three tools, which are now promoted by the network:
– an app for the trainees/workers with intellectual disabilities,
– videos for a proper relationship between people with intellectual disabilities and their colleagues,
– and e-learning for managers of the hospitality sector aimed at certifying the efforts of the company towards job inclusion.
The first labels were released in December 2016 to Portuguese and Italian hospitality companies and now the Valueable network counts more than 100 members, from Germany, Hungary, Italy, Portugal, Spain and Turkey. Look for the three tools below.
