46 companies lauded for hiring disabled workers in Singapore

Two questions pop up when employers consider hiring disabled workers – will they be up to the task and can they get along with co-workers?

But companies which have hired such staff said these challenges can be overcome by investing in more training and making sure tasks and responsibilities are a fit for them.

On Friday, 46 companies were recognised for their efforts and commitment in hiring people with disabilities at the second Enabling Employers Awards held at Marina Bay Sands in Singapore.
