Quotes from employees:

Bezannes location, Disability brainstorming workshop:

“It helped to remove the taboos and prejudices about disability in general.”

Nantes location, Hearing impaired workshop:

“I learned about what a hearing impaired person goes through.”

Neuilly location, company theatre: “When disability occurs”

“By watching the play, you realise there are a lot of things you don’t know about disability and the role of the company, the work doctor, HR.”

New in 2017: Henner employees were able to take part in a photo competition on the theme of disability.
