POSMI Sweaters has recruited 40 physically challenged people directly from a two-day-long Job Fair, organised by Jatiyo Protibondhi Unnayan Foundation under Ministry of Social Welfare, which concluded on Thursday at Krishibid Institute Bangladesh in Dhaka.
The fair organisers have honoured POSMI Sweaters with an award with a crest in recognition of their humanitarian services for the physically challenged people.
The fair was aimed at creating direct communication between organisations and physically challenged members of the society to facilitate them with opportunities to get employment.
Meanwhile POSMI Sweaters has planned to increase its existing job quota of 5 per cent for physically challenged people to 10 per cent from the coming years, said a news year.
This enterprise works closely with the Inclusive Job Center (IJC), Center for Rehabilitation of the Paralyzed (CRP), Center for Disability in Development (CDD), Public Works Department (PWD) under the Ministry of Housing and Public Works and other relevant bodies to ensure optimum working environments for the physically challenged members of its workforce.
"The physically challenged members of our society are as talented and capable to contribute as any other. We have been working to ensure opportunity for any potential resource in our workforce to earn a living for themselves, and live with prestige in the society," the press release quoted POSMI Sweaters Managing Director Md. Moshiul AzamShajal.
A total of 20 organizations participated in the Job Fair, out which 13 aiming to hire physically disabled members of the workforce who are capable to work, yet are generally deprived of the deserved opportunity.
