Quadpack Foundation and the Red Cross in Catalunya sign collaboration agreement
The partnership will provide training and improve the employability of people at risk of social exclusion
Quadpack Foundation, the non-profit arm of Quadpack, is partnering with the Catalan branch of the Spanish Red Cross to help improve the employment prospects of people at risk of social exclusion.
The agreement, signed last September at Red Cross’ headquarters in Barcelona, Spain, aims to provide training, counselling and internet access to a group of participants of the Red Cross Employment Plan, to be selected by both organisations. Besides funding office training, Quadpack Foundation will facilitate participants’ entry in the job market through individual mentoring sessions with Quadpack employees.
The collaboration with the Catalan branch of the Spanish Red Cross is part of a series of actions the Foundation is taking to positively impact Quadpack’s surrounding communities and the society. “As a company, our role is to support our community and give its people the opportunity to thrive. We are proud to partner with the Red Cross to have a positive impact through education and employment. Having had the privilege to meet and learn about them, I am full of admiration and respect for their amazing work,” said Tim Eaves, Chairman of Quadpack Foundation and CEO & co-founder of Quadpack.
“Thanks to the partnership with Quadpack, we will be able to facilitate the employment prospects of people at risk of social exclusion. This alliance will not only help to improve their employability, but also guarantee internet access, so the participants can continue with their career plans,” said Josep Quitet, President of the Catalan branch of the Spanish Red Cross.
