Project Update - January 2012

January was a good month as far as placements are concerned.

8 people with disabilities were hired in various companies and they commenced employment in the mid week of  January 2012. 3 employees are waiting to start at Gul Ahmed textile mills. In addition, 3 interns at Gul Ahmed completed their internship in Creative Department.

A meeting was held with Netcom (a call centre provider), Agha’s Super Market, Acti-med Pharma and Universal Brushware Limited. All were very positive and encouraging for future hiring of people with disabilities. 

What was achieved this month?

  • 8 people with disabilities commenced employment.
  • Evaluation of 7 people was held for future placements. 

What are we proud of? 

  • We have introduced and started using new software to manage our recruitment process, which is beneficial as it automates much of the time-consuming reporting work.

NOWPDP staff met with the following, who showed a positive response towards hiring:

  • Agha’s Super Market
  • NetCom(Call Center)
