September has not been a favourable month in terms of placement. The month was spent in chasing potential new employers.
Evaluation camps were held for the Hearing Impaired and other disabilities.
What was achieved this month?
What are we proud of?
What companies did we meet, or that agreed to take PWDs?
August 2011 was a slow month for PWDs being hired due to Ramadan, where companies have shortened work hours and are generally less productive.
What companies did we meet?
In July, there were some delays with the hiring of candidates that were interviewed during the month, who will commence their work in August. In addition, more people are in the pipeline that will start their employment in future.
NOWPDP staff met with ARY and Embassy Inn.
June 2011 has an average month in terms of PWDs being hired, but other activities pertaining to the employment programme took place.
A total number of 9 PWDs were placed in employment. 2 organizations from the banking sector were met, and resulted in them committing to hire PWDs from NOWPDP.
Catcos, an outsourcing call center company, invited NOWPDP and held a certificate distribution event, and complimented us for our employment generation programme.
The event also supported us by getting us connected to the president of P@SHA (Pakistan Software Houses Association) who is keen to partner with NOWPDP in future to find employment for people with disabilities in the IT industry.
2 companies in the banking sector were met: United Bank Limited, Bank Al Habib
May has been a successful month in terms of placing PWDs in gainful employment. A total number of 12 candidates across 3 types of disabilities were employed, namely deaf, intellectually challenged and physically challenged.
Some new multinationals were approached, who were very keen on hiring in the future.
