Promote diversity and inclusion

Elior NA

Elior Group firmly believes that the diversity of its teams is a source of wealth, innovation and performance. In all the geographical areas where the Group operates, it seeks to build effective and diversified teams that draw on the unique qualities of everybody.

Resolutely responsible, the Group takes into account the specific attributes of all its employees and pays attention to their employability throughout their career. Elior Group rejects all forms of discrimination and works every year to promote the social integration of thousands of unemployed people by giving them access to sustainable employment.  The Group also acts on a daily basis to promote access to employment for the disabled and is actively working to increase the proportion of women in top management positions.
