The Sum of All
In the large company category, HiperDino stood out for its La Suma de Todos project.
This Comprehensive Plan for the Care of People with Disabilities has a start date of 2020, to promote the labor inclusion of these people.
Motivated by the need to promote the employability of people with disabilities; promote their social and labor integration; overcome barriers and stereotypes, both individual and collective; strengthen alliances with associations and foundations and, ultimately, normalize disability, this continuity initiative was launched.
Currently, HiperDino has a total of 150 directly hired people with disabilities in its workforce, and complies with the reserve quota of 2% of the workforce for this group, as required by law.
HiperDino is the leading chain in the food sector in the Archipelago and the only 100% Canarian regional chain. Currently, it has 231 stores and works with more than 13,000 references, of which 40% correspond to local suppliers.
In addition, it is the leading company in the creation of jobs with more than 8,000 workers.
Present in five of the eight Canary Islands, it reaches seven of them through the hiperdino.es online store. This channel, created in 2015, has all the products from its physical stores and, among the advantages it brings, the customer receives the purchase the day after it has been made.
Likewise, it has two exclusive preparation centers for online purchases and 34 DinoShop franchise stores.
Through the DinoSol Foundation, it collaborates in solidarity with various actions supporting the social and cultural development of the Canary Islands, and pays special attention to the people who are part of HiperDino.
