To encourage more corporations to promote the employment and empowerment of persons with disabilities, AIA MPF has decided to go one step further by offering management fees rebate to existing MPF corporate clients who are employing persons with disabilities.
Mr. Stephen Fung said, “Sponsored by AIA MPF, CareER’s “Employment of Higher-educated Disabled Persons” survey has found that although almost 80% of employer respondents positively evaluate the working abilities of workers with disabilities, less than 20% of them are willing to hire. For those who have ever employed people with disabilities, almost 60% of them said they plan to hire more. This shows that if corporations take the first step to employ workers with disabilities, they will be able to understand and focus on their abilities. Hiring workers with disabilities will benefit corporations, the disabled community as well as the society. We hope more corporations across all industries join us to support the employment of people with disabilities and help them integrate into society so as to make Hong Kong a better, inclusive and barrier-free city.”
