The N.C.P.E.D.P. Employment Unit has been instrumental in raising employment-related issues at various forums. The Employment unit spearheads N.C.P.E.D.P.’s campaign to promote the employment of disabled people within corporate India. The unit regularly organises seminars to bring together corporates and disability organisations to help find a way to employ disabled people. The disability-friendly corporate logo (shown on the right) symbolises this partnership.
The recognition associated with the N.C.P.E.D.P.-Shell Helen Keller awards transcends barriers of ‘industry sectors’; it provides a powerful incentive to employers and individuals to see their name thus honoured. The Seventh NCPEDP-Shell Helen Keller Awards -- recognising exceptional individuals and organisations who have established themselves as role models in furthering employment for people with disabilities -- have been announced.
The Employment Unit has been instrumental in getting the Confederation of Indian Industry to constitute a core group to evolve a policy on disability for the private sector. Cyber Media India Ltd, a leading I.T. publishing house, has run a campaign to sensitise the I.T. sector. View the list of disability friendly corporates put together by us from various inputs.
The work done on the N.G.O. and Corporate research studies is a milestone for the unit; their findings continue to guide people working on the issue.
N.C.P.E.D.P. and Samsung have launched a placement division that actively identifies opportunities for persons with disabilities and helps in placements. You can post your resumes if you are seeking jobs or put in details of vacancies with your organisation if you are seeking candidates.
• Post/view your resumes • Post job vacancies • View job openings • Latest Openings
We feel that the right information, at the right time, gives you that added advantage. So we have put together not only lists of employment exchanges and placement centres, but also of the various employment schemes available.
• Self-employment schemes • List of employment exchanges for disabled persons • List of vocational rehabilitation centres • List of polytechnics
By honouring those individuals and organisations that have gone that extra step to integrate disabled people into the national mainstream, N.C.P.E.D.P. reaffirms its commitment to building a free and fair society.
• N.C.P.E.D.P.-Shell Helen Keller awards • National Awards • F.I.I.C.I Awards • CavinKare Ability Awards
