AIA MPF Upgrades Barrier-free Services
In 2016, AIA MPF took the lead to provide online sign language services to persons with hearing impairments. The move garnered praise from industry peers. The online service was upgraded earlier this year to provide assistance to all persons with special needs. The Company hopes to make it more convenient than ever for persons with special needs to have their enquiries fully resolved online. AIA MPF has also been included in the Hong Kong Council of Social Services list of “Barrier-free Companies” by being a Caring Company that has fulfilled applicable criteria under two adjudication scopes, namely “Barrier-free Environment” and “Barrier-free Communication”
To encourage corporations to employ PWDs so they can put their talents to good use, AIA MPF went a step further last year by introducing management fee rebates to existing MPF corporate clients who employ PWDs. AIA MPF plans to continue the rebate programme this year to promote social inclusion. Details will be announced later.
