Many employers are recognizing the benefits of disability inclusion in the workplace. Those businesses with employees with disabilities say they tend to be more productive, more focused on work and more loyal to the organization. Thus employing persons with disabilities is seen as a wise business choice rather than charity or ‘CSR’. But, what are the skills needed by employers to offer an inclusive workplace? Who from the company should be responsible to ensure that an organisational fit is a beneficial one? How can employers facilitate the day-to-day tasks and the career growth of persons with disability?
This and more will be discussed during the webinar. Click here to view the Agenda.

The Malta Employers’ Association is aware that there are a number of issues that are affecting employers with respect to the vaccination of employees. We are holding a webinar on the 9th April to provide answers where these are available, and to identify any possible actions that we may take with the authorities to seek solutions. We have also made a formal request to the Employment Relations Board to include this topic in its agenda, as some actions may require a legal framework to back them up.
This seminar will be addressed by members of the MEA secretariat, and also by officials from the DIER, the OHSA and the Public Health Authorities. We encourage you view the programme here and to attend by registering on: https://forms.gle/et6mMPfWVoeYSLq66.

The webinar aims to instigate discussion amongst employers in the private sector about the challenges and opportunities being faced when dealing with transport. Nearly all sectors deal with some form of transport – whether being a company that forms part of the sector itself, or be it a company that offers delivery of goods, companies dealing with importation and exportation. There needs to be a discussion on the push towards investment in new RES technologies and its implications, the introduction of green taxes, as well as re-skilling and training.
