World Habitat Day on 2 October offers us an opportunity to reflect on the state of our towns and cities, and on the basic right of all people to adequate shelter. It is also intended to remind the world that we all have the power and the responsibility to shape the future of our cities and towns.
Last year, the Aliaxis business Nicoll Peru conducted over 300 home visits to its workers. The objective was to map the main needs of the employees, to gain an increased awareness of critical personal situations and to identify psychosocial risk. Beyond updating and verifying the data on record about each member of their personnel and their family, the visits allowed to gain the broader vision needed to help target social programmes effectively and comprehensively and create a preventive culture.
On top of the list of needs came housing. Loans have been granted to establish basic services such as drainage or put more solid roofs on precarious houses. Next came education: workers and their children have been offered professional training and agreements were made with educational institutions to offer study discounts. Nicoll Peru also offers health guidance and support to workers and family members and even retirement counselling.
