The Division of Speech and Hearing Sciences has received a Friendly Employment Award and an Outstanding Inclusive Team Award MoreClose
We are pleased to announce that the Division of Speech and Hearing Sciences has been awarded a Friendly Employment Award and an Outstanding Inclusive Team Award under the Talent-Wise Employment Charter and Inclusive Organisations Recognition Scheme, by the Labour and Welfare Bureau of the Government of the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region.
The Friendly Employment Award was set up to give due recognition to inclusive organisations which employ persons with disabilities and utilise the work ability of employees with disabilities, allowing them to reach their potential and facilitating their self-sustainability. It is also available to organisations who promote their business partners to employ persons with disabilities. The Outstanding Inclusive Team Award was established to give recognition to the mentors and teams from inclusive organisations where an inclusive workplace is built to assist employees with disabilities in coping with difficulties at work and in integrating into the work team.
The 2017-18 Award Presentation Ceremony and Experience Sharing Session for Inclusive Organisations was held on March 5, 2018 at the Central Government Offices, Tamar. For more details of the Award and the Scheme, please refer to http://www.lwb.gov.hk/charter_scheme/index_e.html.
May we offer our hearty congratulations to the Division.
