Línea Directa Aseguradora shines the spotlight on social inclusion
In the last fiscal year, Línea Directa has implemented social inclusion initiatives that focus on people with intellectual disabilities and, in general, on people who are vulnerable due to being affected by or at risk of social exclusion.
With regard to initiatives that focus on people in vulnerable situations, Línea Directa collaborates with foundations to facilitate their integration into the labour market. In addition, the company has launched initiatives to reduce the technology gap for older people in order to help them integrate into an increasingly digital society.
Lastly, the company has carried out training workshops with the collaboration of its more than 150 volunteers, to enable people with intellectual disabilities to improve their autonomy at home.
For Mar Garre, Head of People, Communication and Sustainability at Línea Directa Aseguradora, "the renewal of the commitment to the European Diversity Charter for the next two years demonstrates the commitment we have at Línea Directa in terms of diversity and social inclusion. In this sense, this initiative adds to all the actions that we are carrying out in the company to generate long-term value as a diverse company and to accompany the most vulnerable people, favouring their social and labour inclusion."
