Sonepar CEO Philippe Delpech, along with many other leading figures in the economic world, have signed an initiative published by Le Figaro, calling for a recovery and support plan for companies that hire employees in fragile or handicapped situations.
Philippe has stated, "At a time when the health crisis has severely shaken our economic fabric, an unprecedented social crisis immediately has ensued. It will hit even more brutally the most fragile among us, who are now more and more numerous. One million more job seekers since the beginning of the crisis!
Inclusive social enterprises, from integration to disability, have responded throughout this period of confinement to participate in the collective effort of resilience, especially among the most vulnerable employees."
