In 2017, Applus+ in Colombia signed an alliance with the Matamoros Corporation to support work and social inclusion opportunities for people with disabilities. The programme helps integrate these employees into different projects and administrative areas of Applus+ in Colombia.
Our work-support programme encourages this personnel to develop their personal and professional skills, and also generates new life projects away from disability, as well as support their social, economic and emotional rehabilitation.
In February 2018, the partnership began with linking 11 people with disabilities to roles within Applus+.
In 2019, there are nine collaborators with physical disabilities, caused by injuries in combat and/or in activities related to their work in military or police services, working at several business areas in Colombia.
