Ms. Rebecca  LEUNG,  Regional  Manager,  Selective  Placement  Division, Labour Department, HKSARG

Persons with disabilities is a workforce that is often overlooked and under-utilized by HR professionals during the hiring process. The conventional view often leads recruiters to deploy the employment of persons with disabilities only as a means to fulfill corporate social responsibility.

In times of robust employment market amidst long-standing low unemployment rate, recruiters are facing increasing challenge in the talent hunt. It is high time for HR professionals to explore the uncharted sea of the employment of persons with disabilities as a manpower solution per se.

The session will introduce various initiatives of the government in supporting business enterprises in the employment of persons with disabilities and discuss some real cases of enterprises benefitting from the engagement of persons with disabilities in their workforce.
