This report highlights best practises of some banks, public and private – their recruitment and hiring practise, work place adaptations and how their eco-sphere is made sensitive so that employees and employers understand disability.
The report also highlights star performers, individuals who have risen to good positions in the financial institutions, despite their disability &inspire. Organisations who read this report will realise that it can be done – youth with disabilities can be skilled appropriately as companies are hiring, not out of sympathy or empathy. But because this untapped talent pool helps their business.
