Transcom Concepcion eligible for the Chilean Inclusive Stamp 2013
Chile is a country of contrasts. From the breathtaking mountains in Los Andes to the Atacama Desert, you can find an incredible variety of landscapes to enjoy. It is also a land of opportunities, a growing economy with one of the lowest unemployment rates in the world, only 6.2%. That is why a 70% unemployment rate among disabled Chileans is something to think and to act about.
Transcom in Chile has always been committed to the integration of people with disabilities. This was strongly reinforced during 2013 with our participation in the Agora Project and the hiring of visually impaired agents.
Transcom Chile has participated in different forums about the Employment of disabled staff and has been recognized by the Chilean authorities.
On the 6th of September, the National Disability Service (Senadis), represented by its Regional Director, Michelle Orthusteguy, visited our center in Concepción and encouraged Transcom to apply for the Chilean Inclusive Stamp. Senadis authorities also appealed to other companies in the region to follow the example of Transcom in integrating people with disabilities into the workplace.
