Hiring the physically challenged
Hiring the handicapped is good business
Modern enterprises adopting the innovative HR practice of integrating the physically challenged employees with their able bodied co-workers. We are witnessing awitness measurable increases in productivity, noting cost reductions, and observing a positive effect on the company’s overall development and enhanced corporate image.
HR departments face the hurdle of securing and retaining employees in an era of steady economic growth and mass migration of potential staff. The inability to quickly fill positions is a major barrier for many companies’ path to prosperity. In the current and foreseeable labor market, astute HR Managers should, without reservations, hire disabled workers to solve staff shortages. In Poland there are more than 2,5 million people of working age who are registered as physically challenged. Only 20% of these potential workers are currently on payrolls, three times less than the EU average. Hiring physically challenged workers gives your organization access to a much larger talent pool, empowering you to constantly provide the best services and products.
Handicapped workers have a lot to offer potential employers. Our hands-on experience in successfully placing thousands of physically challenged employees in a host of industries proves they posses more company loyalty, motivation, reliability than their non-disabled counterparts. The stability, productivity and talents of these workers more than compensate for their disability. Often their professional credentials, training and education exceed that of the other workers. Required investments in infrastructural improvements and expenses arising from various labor regulations governing hiring the handicap are quickly recovered.
Hiring the physically challenged makes excellent business sense as well as making the organization a good corporate citizen in the eyes of the community and your employees. All workers benefit from diversity in the workplace, adding to the sense of fairness that comes from seeing good employment practice in action, thus improving workplace morale and productivity.
Your support in integrating the handicapped community into the workplace and society at large is, in itself, a worthy endeavor. Both you and the employee will profit from the mutually advantageous cooperation.
