MaltaPost Plc was awarded the so-called “Premju Soċjetà Ġusta” award in recognition for its “inclusive manner” in respect of its Tanseana Project, according to a press statement put out by the local postal firm in January.
The ‘Premju Soċjetà Ġusta’ is organised by the Parliamentary Secretariat for Persons with Disability and Active Ageing and was created to acknowledge employers with commitment and dedication for engaging people with disabilities. “This award recognises employers that offer in-work opportunities to persons with disability and implement practices that go beyond what is required of them by law,” the press statement says.
Most of the staff members working in the framework of this project are people who reside in Gozo. With the support of JobsPlus and the Lino Spiteri Foundation, they carry out work related to Document Management services.
“MaltaPost has undertaken this project in the spirit of promoting inclusivity understanding, supporting, enhancing and focusing primarily on the abilities of disabled persons. The core principle that guides these Awards is to have a society whereby persons with a disability participate actively in the community,” the press statement says.
