DLF, India’s largest developer, today organized ‘Taare Zameen Par’, a first-of-its kind flash mob show by its specially abled employees, who came together to showcase and address office safety and preventive measures to ensure a safe and healthy environment.
The common causes of office accidents include instances like slipping, tripping, falling hazards, cutting, improper lifting and handling techniques, exposure to toxic substances, electrical etc. The objective of highlighting critical issue of office safety via flash mob was to provide a fun-filled and interactive platform to DLF’s special employees and unleash their inner potential.
Speaking on DLF’s noble initiative, spokesperson from DLF Offices, said, “We believe that specially-abled are highly talented and creative individuals and deserve the right to voice their opinion and showcase their talent. Platform like this will help them bring out the best in them and boost their confidence so that they can work without any inhibition in the corporate world.”
He further added, “We are actively looking at ways to increase the intake of the specially-abled people into the organization as part of DLF’s philosophy to not only create job opportunities but also lay out a definite career path for them. We are confident we will have at least a 5% increase in the people with special ability working with us by end of current financial year compared to more than 50 now.”
A recent UN report revealed that India is home to over 100 million specially abled citizens. However, only 1,00,000 of them are successful in obtaining employment.
DLF is one of the Indian organizations to offer career opportunity in soft skills to specially-abled people and provide the necessary training for a career in the real estate sector. DLF Offices started this initiative eight months ago under the direct supervision and guidance of its CEO to encourage the intake of disabled employees and help them develop skills and gain employment.
