”ICA-Jerry” (Mats Melin) in the ICA TV commercials is a well known figurehead for ICA's efforts on jobs for people with disabilities, We can do more.
In autumn 2009, ICA started the Vi kan mer/We Can Do More initiative at a central level, which aims to increase interest in and opportunities for further employment for people with disabilities in ICA’s operations. The basic premise is to offer real jobs in the regular operation, jobs that can be adapted to the individual’s circumstances.
With the aim of facilitating employment, ICA has a central co-operation with Arbetsförmedlingen (the Swedish Public Employment Service) and Samhall, in which they work directly with ICA stores.
