Forsee Power is actively committed to employing disabled people. Here’s what they have to say.

From 20 to 26 November 2023, Forsee Power is celebrating the 27th European Week for the Employment of People with Disabilities. It's a campaign that has become a symbol of the Group's commitment to promoting the employment of people with disabilities. Our Group, with 700 employees across Europe, North America and Asia-Pacific, is fully committed to creating an inclusive working environment accessible to all. We firmly believe in diversity in all its forms, seeing it as a real driving force. This diversity, present in our teams around the world, is not just a principle that we defend, but a reality that we cultivate.

At Forsee Power, we are proud to help shape a more inclusive working world.

Employees made aware of disability issues

In 2023, we launched an awareness-raising and support program aimed at informing and supporting our employees about disability in the workplace.

Participation in Handispoursuite

Developed by a french association, the dematerialised board game “Handipoursuite” provided an innovative and engaging experience for Forsee Power employees.

The game takes participants on a journey that raises awareness of the different realities of disability, focusing on inclusion, diversity and understanding the challenges faced by people with disabilities. Through a variety of scenarios and challenging questions, employees were given the opportunity to explore specific aspects of disability, raising awareness.

Service contracts in the sheltered employment sector

Over the past six years, our commitment to inclusion has also extended to our recruitment practices. One important initiative has been our active collaboration with contractors from the sheltered employment sector.

We have established fruitful partnerships with Establishments and Services for Aids through Work. These partnerships have enabled us to employ around ten people full-time at our Chasseneuil-du-Poitou industrial site, France.

These contracts are a concrete expression of our vision of an inclusive company. By creating career opportunities within sheltered employment, we are actively working to break down barriers and promote equal opportunities. These initiatives reflect our belief that diversity of talent is a strength that enriches our working environment and contributes to the collective success of Forsee Power.

Recognition of Disabled Worker Status (RQTH)

Working closely with an organisation specialising in disability issues in the workplace, we have set up awareness-raising sessions at all three Forsee Power sites in France, focusing on the Recognition of Disabled Worker Status. These sessions were designed to inform, educate and guide French employees through the recognition procedure.

During these sessions, participants were given an in-depth understanding of the benefits of this process, the eligibility criteria, and the steps required to obtain this recognition. Experts from the specialised body shared valuable information on the rights and support available, helping to demystify the process and remove any apprehensions.

Supporting charities for people with disabilities

As part of our commitment to social responsibility and inclusion, we recently organised a bun sale for our employees. All proceeds from the sale were donated to an association dedicated to the well-being of people with mental disabilities.

By taking part in this initiative, we wanted to improve the quality of life of disabled people and encourage their integration and independence within society. Every euro raised by this bun sale has helped to support their initiatives, whether through educational programs, social activities, or projects promoting professional integration.

We firmly believe in the value of every talent, and our commitment to social causes reflects our vision of a working environment where every individual, whatever the challenge they face, is not only recognised but also valued.

Our employees talk about their disability

My status as a disabled worker is linked to my work posture. I started the recognition process on the advice of my occupational physician, in order to adapt my workstation and compensate for my condition. I considered my disability to be ‘minimal’ compared with other people, so I was surprised to be awarded a recognition. Psychologically, I was also apprehensive about this status.

The adaptation of my workstation proved to be decisive. Cap Emploi, specialised French employment agencies carrying out a public service mission, played a major role in meeting my specific needs. Thanks to their help, Forsee Power received financial assistance to subsidise the equipment I needed (ergonomic chair with headrest, adjustable footrests, height-adjustable desk and dual screen). I also have suitable equipment at home for teleworking.

I’ve been reassured about the confidentiality of this process. Above all, recognition as a disabled worker has enabled me to benefit from serious support to improve my quality of life at work.


In my previous professional experience, the nurse at my company had referred me to the recognition process, but at the time I didn’t feel I needed it.

Nevertheless, when I joined Forsee Power I decided to launch the procedure with the support of human resources and occupational medicine. My application has been validated and it will enable me to benefit from a suitable accommodation in the event that my condition worsens.

At first, I hesitated to embark on this procedure because I was afraid that the status would mean I would lose my job. Today, I see it as part of my well-being at work, because it helps me to stay in work and keeps me socially connected.

I strongly encourage my colleagues who are experiencing difficulties on a day-to-day basis to get support. Even if there’s no immediate need, with age and fatigue health problems can become more acute.


Following an accident at work, I was referred for recognition as a disabled worker in order to safeguard my job and my personal well-being. I felt the need to take essential steps to alleviate my new condition.

I had no hesitation in starting this process, as I was well supported by my referring doctor and the service of the occupational physician.

Thanks to my recognition, I received support from Cap Emploi to start retraining, in particular by financing training while continuing to receive an income.

At Forsee Power, my RQTH has been taken into account, and management has helped me to adapt my workstation so that I can continue to do my job in suitable conditions.

For all these reasons, I encourage my colleagues to make this request so that they can flourish at work.
