As part of the European Disabled Employment Week, the managers of Clos du nid, together with their boss Jacques Blanc, presented two new and innovative measures on Friday 18 November.
Creation of a nursery
At noon, the first farms were set up in the nursery, a new activity launched by the Association of Workers with Disabilities.
The action is sponsored by Axel Uddo, co-director of the Vasgos Foundation, which owns forest plantations in the department and is involved in implementing this action to help reintegrate people with disabilities into a normal environment. With the support of the State and the Ministry of Social Affairs of € 110.000, the establishment of this nursery (trees, medicinal plants, honey) that meets the specific needs of specialists (farmers, producers, ONF or private foresters), which will be launched in early 2023, for the first sales the following autumn , when the team responsible for this new place is formed.
This innovative project aims to respond to demand, to support local synergies, to develop a new economic activity and wants to be a carrier by creating a new inclusive activity for people with disabilities.
National scheme for supported employment
Then, at 3 pm, there was a presentation of the National Scheme for Supported Employment, led by Clos du nid in Lozère, funded by public and private authorities (ARS Occitanie, Agepfiph, FIPHFP and Vasgos Foundation), which will have nearly thirty beneficiaries by the end general. Also sponsored by Axel Oddo, you will ensure the mission of securing and perpetuating the employer-employee relationship and will target job seekers, as well as potential future employers. The project is based on work activity, follow-up, stereotyped and continuous employment of persons with disabilities, in order to facilitate integration into companies. The challenges are manifold for companies, which will therefore see their teams strengthened with competent people and effective recruitment will enhance the cohesion and diversity of the teams, while strengthening the CSR approach.
This system already targets about thirty people in about fifteen companies and offers people wishing to join it 300 training days per year for 20 people (650 days in providing service for about ten people), knowing that every year five people with disabilities from these internships join the offshore companies. There is no doubt that this device is likely to fulfill the task for which it was set up, and has been praised by both the disabled and businessmen, to the delight of the project leader and sponsor.
