More and more companies are recognising the potential of disabled people and are keen to hire them. Most of the companies recruit through NGOs and also provide job training. Analysing the trend, Prosenjit Ganguly, vice-president and head, Human Resource, Hinduja T.M.T. said, “It’s very relevant. I’m amazed at the skills some [disabled] people have. They have the ability and inclination to work extra hard and that makes all the difference.”
PWDs are the new favourites for a lot of companies, for reasons ranging from lower attrition rates to higher customer satisfaction.
Sudha Narayan, IBM, says about her first working experience with a disabled person “I had a lot of lessons to learn from that”, she said. She spoke about the journey of IBM with respect to hiring disabled people. “It is a new normal, there is no longer a divide between abled and disabled employees”, she said and added by saying “You can reach out to NGOs, conduct internship programs for them to learn and also for the company to learn how better to cater to such people if we were to hire them”
