THE TF1 GROUP SIGNS THE MANIFESTO FOR THE INCLUSION
OF PEOPLE WITH DISABILITIES IN ECONOMIC LIFE
Gilles Pélisson, Chairman & CEO of the TF1 group, today signed the Manifesto for the Inclusion of People with Disabilities in Economic Life. Produced on the initiative of the French government and the Salon du handicap, this charter of operational commitments aims to ensure that people with disabilities enjoy better inclusion in companies.
At the TF1 group, we are introducing more and more initiatives to support the inclusion of people with disabilities in our business, including reorientation training for young people with disabilities; subcontracting more work to the adapted sector (businesses staffed at least 80% by people with disabilities); and making our digital content more accessible.
Inclusion: a priority for the TF1 group
Mindful of the need to respect the uniqueness of each individual among our staff and through our programmes, we are committed to representing diversity in all its aspects, every day.
For over 11 years, a team entirely dedicated to diversity and disability has been driving a pro-active policy supporting inclusion, involving numerous practical actions: initiatives like welcoming trainees with disabilities, staff training, making work stations disability-friendly and awareness campaigns are playing a key role in the successful integration of workers with disabilities into the TF1 group.
On our channels, we are also committed to showing French society in all its richness, without no-go areas or stereotypes, and to promoting diversity and living together better though programmes like "Mention Particulière" and "C'est quoi cette question?". We are keen to increase the accessibility of our content: that’s why we support the startup FACIL'iti, incubated by MediaLab TF1 in 2018, to make content on the MYTF1.fr and LCI.fr sites readable and accessible to all.
We at the TF1 group are convinced that difference and diversity are valuable assets for our business, and that our success requires the skills of all.
