To select the winners, the panel took into account the number of disadvantaged people appointed as a proportion of the whole workforce, the profiles of the integrated employees and the average duration of their contracts. Embutidos Monter received its award in the Large Company category, since its workforce is made up of over 250 employees.

    With this prize the "La Caixa" Charitable Foundation recognises the company's labour insertion policy, centred on recruiting people with learning difficulties and mental illness. Since 2008 the company has worked with the La Fageda Foundation, an organised participating in the Incorpora scheme that so far has helped 10 people with these disabilities to join the Embutidos Monter workforce under identical terms to the rest of the employees. The panel highlighted the company's high level of commitment and the fact that it has "gone way beyond the requirements of the LISMI (the Spanish Law on the Integration of People with Disabilities), which makes it mandatory for companies with over 50 workers to employ people with disabilities to form at least 2% of their workforce.
    Miquel Tarradas, head of Human Resources for the Girona company, believes the experience of working with this group is very positive: "They are people with different capabilities but equally able to contribute actively to society. Their presence at our plants has helped us develop the business"
