BLS – A socially responsible organization.


It has become appallingly obvious that our technology has exceeded our humanity and the greatness of humanity is not in being human, but in being humane. Any living being that is sent from the Almighty comes along with a purpose and it is thus defined well when a special body strives to win that purpose. Physically Disabled beings strive for self-respectability and self-esteem by being valuable to the society.
They too have aspirations to be self-independent, and opportunities must be offered by giant corporate houses to showcase their capabilities. Actions of firms that contribute to social welfare, beyond what is required for profit maximization, are classified as CSR. There is no better example than BLS International’s commitment to hiring people with disabilities. These talented professionals bring unique experiences that foster innovation and new ideas while contributing to a culture of warmth and true inclusion.
Physically challenged people are generally aware of their limitations and know there are certain things they cannot do in an ordinary manner. Contradictory to popular belief, it is also true that nature compensates them with higher levels of skills in distinguished aspects. At the mental level, they are no different from any other person and in many cases quite often better than them. Society must be sensitive to encourage corporate houses to include physically challenged persons at work places and organisations should aggressively come forward to participate in this social-corporate partnership.
BLS International - Punjab Sewa Kendra project has provided opportunities for physically challenged persons to earn their livelihood just like any other normal persons. Physically challenged persons in rural areas need both the care and attention of family and staying employed. Employment is the biggest source of self-respect of those who are physically challenged. Punjab Sewa Kendra opened such a window of opportunity to those who are well educated and looking for opportunities to prove themselves. It is a matter of pride for such an organisation that 2% of their workforce form inclusion resources.
Such special resources are catering to the needs of citizens through e-governance platforms. In fact, BLS has given the physically challenged persons equal opportunities from the point of recruiting and deputing them in the system for serving the citizens. Even the capacity building and training activity have been undertaken at their workplace such that they handle the operations independently and serve the society on an equal footing in a dignified manner.
People with disabilities are an important component of a diverse pool of talent and BLS International is determined to draw from this valuable resource. We actively seek to hire disabled employees because of the tremendous value they bring to the workplace.
