The Madrid 2021 Plena Inclusion Awards have recognized CGI in its eighth edition for its Corporate Social Responsibility policy and, specifically, its solidarity work to promote the employability and labor inclusion of people with IDD.
As part of its collaboration with Full Inclusion, CGI has been carrying out corporate volunteering actions and supports the design and development of technological solutions aimed at this group, as well as the launch of the “Sustainability Innovation Laboratory”.
“As a caring and responsible company, we are proud to contribute to the important work carried out by Plena Institución Madrid. Corporate social responsibility is one of CGI’s hallmarks and our commitment is to continue expanding this collaboration”, explains Jaime Hortelano, responsible for CGI’s operations in Spain, Italy and Latin America.

In this way, and through organizations such as the ALEPH-TEA and ASPIMIP associations, and the APASCOVI and ADEMO foundations, training courses were held on sustainability, environmental and waste management, benefiting around 30 people with IDD.
In collaboration with Plena Institución, CGI has also donated all the furniture from its old offices to ADEMO and its computer equipment to the NGO ProTDG, giving them a second life and at the same time contributing to the circular economy.
In terms of volunteering, CGI has had CGI Solidarity since the end of 2021, a platform through which the company’s employees can contribute to different solidarity actions, such as supporting people with IDD in their training or professional development and management of digital workshops, among others.
Currently, through this platform, CGI volunteers are developing a pro bono project for Full Inclusion to help manage Occupational Risk Prevention (ORP).
According to Mariano Casado, president of Plena Institución Madrid, “the Madrid Inclusion Awards are a symbolic way of recognizing the commitment that companies like CGI make for the social inclusion of people in situations of vulnerability.”
