Ever since its creation, the Europ Assistance (EA) Group, which we are proudly a part of, has been driven by the same mission: caring for people and improving their lives by providing services that resolve difficult or stressful situations. These values are at the heart of the Europ Assistance Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) approach towards its employees, partners, service providers and customers.
Developing a Global CSR Approach
The EA Group has always developed many CSR initiatives at a local level. Education, health, social entrepreneurship, green actions to protect the environment, helping families in need: the scope of its actions is quite broad. However, in 2015, the EA Group decided to initiate a global CSR approach, to optimize and maximize our impact in the community
Making Life Easier For Individuals with Disabilities
The first step of this global CSR approach was the launch of a global initiative towards individuals with disabilities. The EA Group has a large number of employees and customers with disabilities, and therefore disability is at the heart of the Group’s concerns. Supported by the Group Management Committee members who are sponsoring the various actions, this Group-scale initiative is based on three major cornerstones: making life easier for EA Group employees with disabilities; adapting our services to the needs of customers with disabilities and developing innovative products designed for individuals with disabilities. To promote employee awareness and involvement in this respect, the Group organizes dedicated meetings focused on the topic of disabilities, mobilizing employees, management teams as well as external stakeholders worldwide.
