Diversity in the workplace: disability at the heart of Newrest’s social commitment
A strong axis of Newrest Group’s social responsibility policy is its commitment to its employees by working to fight against all forms of discrimination.

The unit has signed a partnership contract with a temporary employment agency specialized in the accompaniment of disabled people in Reunion Island. This agency’s called Service Intérim.
Newrest units’ cohesion is particularly taken to heart by the teams and managers because it is reflected in the results. It allows efficiency at work, which best satisfies the customers.
One of the objectives of the Newrest teams in Reunion Island is to highlight the diversity of people and talents, and this initiative contributes to this dynamism.
Integration at work applied to reality: Jonathan Boyer’s testimony
Mr. Jonathan Boyer is one of the various people who have been integrated into the Newrest team and its work by Service Intérim.
In order to successfully integrate Jonathan into the teams and his workstation, the teams were informed of his arrival and supported during the first weeks of his employment. Everyone contributed to the success and integration of this employee.
He said he was “very satisfied with my temporary assignment with Newrest, which was able to adapt the position of cook to my disability.” He also confided that his “position was adapted and I was able to carry out my missions with ease and autonomy. This experience has allowed me to see new professional opportunities, including the realization of a project that is close to my heart: the opening of a food truck.”
With the integration of people with disabilities, the Reunion unit has given itself the means to achieve its objectives. Newrest believes that attracting, developing and retaining employees who reflect the diversity of the company and its communities is essential to its success.
