The past June 8th of 2022 was the 17th edition from the Randstad Foundation award ceremony. The company Dans le Noir ? was honored to receive a reward for the innovative and inclusive concept they carry.
commitment to the labor inclusion of people with disabilities
Each year since 2004, the award ceremony from Foundation Randstad in Spain makes a special mention to the development of inclusive initiatives to people with disabilities. To this seventeenth edition, this event took place in the complex Rafael del Pino.
After an exciting and inspiring ceremony, Dans le Noir ? had been awarded in the category "labor integration of people with disabilities implemented by an SME" among 6 others categories.
Thanks to their innovative and inclusive concept, the restaurant where you can enjoy your meal in complete darkness, the firm highlights as compromised with the labor inclusion through an alternative and original experience.
In the restaurants of Dans le Noir ?, the clients can taste their surprise meal in full darkness guided by blind waiters. This is a sensorial experience, an original restaurant where you can play with your other senses and challenge them. At the same time, this is a human experience; here the blind waiter is the guide and the customers need their support to enjoy the dinner. This is a way for the clients to change their perspective and “point of view” by changing the social role during the experience. Likewise the darkness gives another kind of opportunity ; this is a social experience where everyone can share free of visual prejudices, with their guide or other clients.

As Maria Vivier, the director form the Randstad Foundation in Spain, said: ¨There is a perfect alignment between disability and firms who want a better future¨.
At Dans le Noir ? we gamble on diversity and inclusion in order to keep moving forward, having in mind that the disability is a diferencial value that can give infinities options. Every person has a different potential, likewise we have to work to develop everyone's talent and also remember that behind a disability, there are always a lot of abilities.
¨Everyday we struggle in order to make people know that behind a handicap there are abilities. For Dans le Noir ?, receiving this award is an honor because it’s a great way to transmit the message of inclusion we carry with enthusiasm, showing that a disability is an added value for a firm. We thank the Randstad Foundation for making this possible and recognized us as a committed entity with inclusion.¨ Sixtine Tripier-Rollin, manager of Dans le Noir ? Madrid.
