The OHL Group, through OHL Servicios, its division specialized in facilities management, has been granted the 2017 Stela Award by the Madrid Down Syndrome Foundation (Down Madrid) for the third year in a row, in recognition of its commitment to the labor market integration of people with Down syndrome and intellectual disabilities. Through this award, OHL Servicios-Ingesan, the head subsidiary of the Services division, has seen its work in furthering the integration into society and the working work of people from this group acknowledged.
