A job offer means a lot to people with disabilities. With employment opportunities by conscientious enterprises, resource support from government, and linkage between social welfare organisations, the society can take a daring step forward and offer more opportunities for people with disabilities.
“E- Connect” adheres to the spirit of “sharing” which benefits the disabled, corporates and the society at the same time:
Nowadays, all kinds of corporates are equipped with different working environment. In the past, the employers might find it diffcult to recruit suitable employees even with determination of hiring people with disabilities. A total of 6 local social welfare organisations joined hands to form “E-Connect” Employment Network. Corporates and people with disabilities can be matched by a simple call made by social welfare organization(s) quick job matching for the corporates and people with disabilities. Frequent post-employment support services will also be provided to minimise any difficulties encountered by conscientious enterprises when hiring disabled employees.
It is always challenging for people with visual and/or hearing impairment(s), long-term illness, ex-mentally illness and physical disables to be employed to find work. With joint effort of 6 local social welfare organisations, “E-Connect” Employment Network strives to look for conscientious business partners and process job matching for disabled members and therefore enhancing employability. In addition, members with disabilities can enroll various courses offered by 6 social welfare organisations under “E-Connect” Scheme for more training opportunities.
Due to limited resources, individual organisations encounter difficulties in organising diversified training or recruitment activities throughout the year. However, resources that are available under “E-Connect” Employment Network has created more opportunities to help people with disabilities taking a further step to success.
