Improving the Living Environment of Employees

 

The SIFCA Group's main priority is to preserve the health and safety of its 31,000 employees, both women and men, that contribute daily to our position as an industry leader. This is the motivation behind the string of social investments made by SIFCA to offer a decent living environment, at its integrated agricultural units, that includes access to housing, electricity, potable water, education and quality health care for its employees and their families.

Additionally, 100% of the employees have Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) adapted to their job profiles.

As health remains a priority for our Group, all our employees and their families benefit from health insurance coverage and the availability of an occupational physician. On each Integrated Agricultural Unit, SIFCA has medical and social centres, health dispensaries, maternity wards, and sectional infirmaries available to employees and surrounding communities. Several investments have been made in our health establishments, in order to renovate the equipment and improve the quality of services. It should also be noted that the SIFCA Group, through numerous awareness and screening campaigns, expresses its commitment to the fight against malaria, HIV- AIDS and cancers every year.
