We provide job opportunities for vulnerable people within our stores, factories and logistics centres.
At Inditex we develop various initiatives aiming to promote the integration into the labour market of people with special needs or in a vulnerable situation. An example of social initiative is the Salta Project, which started in France in 2008 under the name Jeunes and reached Spain in 2010.
Its objective is to provide job opportunities within our stores, factories and logistics centres, for people who live in situations of social exclusion. Thanks to its excellent results and positive reception the project has been extended to 13 markets: Brazil, France, Germany, Greece, Italy, Mexico, Poland, Portugal, South Korea, Spain, Turkey, United Kingdom and United States.
1,395 people have been trained and joined the Group thanks to this project and the involvement of 3,000 employees who have taken part as trainers, tutors and mentors in each one of its editions, guaranteeing an effective adaptation and incorporation in the workplace.
Salta counts on the essential collaboration of over 40 social entities who support us during the entire process, from selecting and training to following people once they have been incorporated in the workplace.
2020 has been consolidated as a new solid year in terms of our social projects, as well as flexible when adapting to the new Covid-19 context. Training units have been given to improve employability to people in special situations that find barriers when looking for a job. 100 employees from different teams have trained and guided over 150 participants from different NGOs through self-steem/personal branding workshops, CV elaboration, active employment search in social media, styling and job interviews’ simulations.
Besides, this new modality has been reinforced in every country with an individual mentoring programme in which every participant is supported by an Inditex’s employee to work on the contents of those training units. Its aim is to empower people with social and economic barriers so they can improve their employability.
