Inclusive hiring: the solution to a sustainable workforce

People from the various differently enabled communities provide organizations with valuable perspectives on the development of products and services, marketing plans and customer satisfaction. When employers commit to hiring more inclusively, it demonstrates we, as a society, are open to building a more progressive and inclusive community.

Organizations such as Marina Bay Sands (MBS) have benefitted from embracing diversity and inclusion at the core of their hiring philosophy. Since partnering local charity SPD in 2016 to establish its inclusive hiring programme, MBS has implemented assistive technology and physical modifications to support the hiring of persons with disabilities. It has hired nearly 60 persons with disabilities since 2010 to support its 24/7 large-scale operations and business needs.

Regardless of the size of your organization, you can take steps to adopt inclusive hiring practices and tap another talent pool. Government schemes and initiatives such as job placement/job support services, the Open Door Programme and the Enabling Employment Credit are all available to you.

Keen to know more about hiring persons with disabilities? Learn from Marina Bay Sands’ inclusive hiring journey here and contact the SPD Employment Support Programme at today to start your journey. You won’t regret it.
