In January 2020, CCC signed the Diversity Charter, thereby sending a clear signal of continued appreciation diversity in-house. The Charter covers the employees experience and appreciation regardless of their gender, nationality, ethnic origin, religion or belief, disability, age, sexual orientation and identity.
With the signing, CCC is demonstrating part of its corporate culture to the outside world, which has been practiced for years in house. CCC was the first company to receive the newly created inclusion certificate from the Essen Employment Agency in 2016.
"We are honouring CCC's constant commitment to the employment of people with disabilities," said the authority on this occasion. It is still more difficult for those affected to gain a foothold on the job market, Rolf Heiber, Managing Director of the Employment Agency, emphasized. The applicants would often have very good qualifications.
From the point of view of the Employment Agency, CCC serves as a role model for how inclusion can be lived. People who were previously unable to gain work experience in this industry would also be introduced to employment via the forward and open minded thinking of CCC.
"We look at the talents and skills of the people,"
emphasized Ulf Herbrechter, Operational Director of CCC. The company currently employs 8,500 people across Europe.
Since the company was founded in 1998, it has been anchored in the CCC values that it is irrelevant where an employee comes from, what they believe in or what cultural background there is and we only look at how we can support them in achieving goals, ”adds Ulf Herbrechter. "At the same time, by signing the charter, we want to give Diversity Management in CCC even more prominence and make our open corporate culture more visible to every employee and potential new employee."
Diversity creates ideas, alternative approaches, new perspectives, all of this inspires all teams at all locations and contributes to the unmistakable outstanding CCC quality.
