Nasscom Plans to Create IT, BPO Jobs for 2,000 Differently-able Candidates
Bangalore: The social development arm of IT-BPO, Nasscom Foundation has all the plans of creating 2,000 jobs for differently challenged people in the IT and BPO sectors in the next two years.
Though many of the corporate companies have remained insensitive to create jobs for differently challenged people, some organizations have figured out the benefits of a diversity policy and are planning to hire differently challenged people, reports Mini Joseph Tejeswi on the Times of India website.
Rita Soni, CEO of the Nasscom Foundation said that, India at present has 5.5 million disabled youth within the age group of 12 to 24 years, but only few corporate companies have taken the initiative of creating workplaces and recruiting differently challenged people. Continuing, Rita Soni also said that, the diversity is seen as an extremely strong business case to drive job creation for differently challenged people in India.
At present, a very small number of differently challenged people are employed in different organizations and the number is so small that no one has found it worthy to collect that number.
Rita Soni, has said that, Nasscom foundation will be concentrating on six cities especially Bangalore, Mumbai, New Delhi, Hyderabad etc at first, and will start repeating similar job fair in these cities to make it convenient for these differently challenged people before expanding the job fair to other cities. The main intention of this job fair is to empower these people by giving them their own financial freedom and confidence, and also to give them a better status in the society.
