People with disabilities and their inclusion in the workplace are no longer absent from the business agenda. Disability inclusion now features in many policies and is fast gaining momentum in business strategies. Including people with disabilities and accommodating their disability-related needs are important moves for companies in terms of talent resourcing and social responsibility as well as compliance with national legislation. Managers are well aware of the importance of disability inclusion for their business' success, but might still have questions on how initiatives can be implemented successfully. How do they get started effectively? How can initiatives be improved?
In partnership with the Community Development Authority, Manzil and Sustainable Square, Emirates NBD launched the #TogetherLimitless Careers Network to help hire and onboard employees with disabilities free of cost. If your company is interested in diversifying its workforce, working towards inclusion and hiring a person with a disability, contact our team today!

According to the United Nations, more than one billion people in the world live with some form of disability. In the years ahead, disability in the UAE will be an even greater concern as its prevalence is on the rise.
The #TogetherLimitless Careers Network is built on the foundation to assist employers in enhancing their ability for workplace inclusion so that they do not miss out on the best talent in the world, no matter what their abilities.

The Careers Network offers job coaching for the hired candidate free of charge* to the employer.

We are surrounded by incredible people. People of all ethnicities and ages, diverse as the world itself. At some point in time, we might have said that some of these people have a disability. Together, Emirates NBD is working with experts and stakeholders to help our community dissolve obstacles that people with disabilities face. So that tomorrow, "people with disabilities" can simply be "people".
People with disabilities represent a talented, untapped labour force, and hiring them has been shown to improve workplace culture, reduce workforce attrition, and increase a company's bottom line. It also aligns with the UAE vision to create a fully inclusive society for 'people with determination', and turn the Emirates into one of the most disabled-friendly regions in the world. So, once you've decided to hire more people with disabilities, how should you prepare and adapt your work environment?Know more
