BLIND SA LAUNCHES ‘SENSITISATION WORKSHOPS’ FOR POTENTIAL EMPLOYERS

With just under 400 unemployed blind an partially sighted candidates currently on our database,
we have to be both practical and innovative if we’re to see these folk successfully employed their workplaces.
“We needed to offer something more to companies,” says Parishna. Creating awareness around blind and
partially sighted people, and and management about being completely comfortable around people with disabilities.

Blind SA would like to offer any company a free sensitisation workshop.

This informative Says Blind SA’ s Employment Officer Parishna Ramluckan: “It’s not enough to have bright and brilliant potential workshop serves to create an understanding between staff and a blind or partially sighted colleague. The workshop, in employees who’ve been a light-hearted manner will screened, completed some fairly intense job readiness training, and who’re clutching professionally scripted CV’s. What have we been doing for possible employers?”

Parishna’ s insight is that most companies simply don’t feel confident enough about how to bring a blind or partially sighted staff member into educating potential employers and their staff, is important. We’re now equipped with a tailored awareness presentation – but sensitisation for employers and their staff is also important. For this, we have our sensitisation workshop. It’s a unfilled, practical workshop for the company, helping to sensitise the staff equip staff with skills to understand the do’s and don’t’s when interacting with people with disabilities.

An awareness presentation, fun team building activities, and demonstrations on how a blind or partially sighted employee performs tasks in the workplace are just some of what is covered in the workshop.
