WHAT ARE DISNEYLAND® PARIS POLICIES CONCERNING EMPLOYEES WITH DISABILITIES?

Diversity

In 2016, 743 Cast Members with disabilities work at Disneyland® Paris and we plan to recruit 120 more over the next five years.

A responsible employer, committed to diversity, Disneyland Paris believes that recruiting people with disabilities can be a source of enrichment for all. Its ongoing commitment to facilitate the recruitment and daily life of Cast Members with disabilities led to an 8th company agreement, signed in 2014 with the labour unions.

 

Since 1993, Mission Handicap teams have worked to support employees with disabilities.

Their missions include:

  • ensuring smooth integration (awareness training for teams, sign language interpreters, adapting job descriptions if necessary, follow-up interviews)
  • optimising their workplace (personalised work stations)
  • providing support for any special needs (extra days off for disability-related administrative or medical appointments, financing equipment such as hearing aids, fitting out a vehicle, etc.)
  • finding new positions for disabled employees declared unfit for their work station
  • monitoring enforcement of the company disability policy
  • implementing communication and awareness campaigns.  

For young disabled workers, Mission Handicap offers orientation interviews and advice, introductory visits and internships. They have also set up a scholarship programme in partnership with the FÉDÉEH (the French federation for students with disabilities): the goal of these scholarships is to promote job training for disabled young people. They provide financial solutions adapted to their special needs and encourage them to reach their potential and career objectives.

Good idea

80% of all disabilities are invisible. It is important for disabled people to accept their situation and not be afraid of declaring themselves as a disabled worker. It’s the best way to be more comfortable and confident in the workplace. Speak up!
