The ‘Premju Socjetà Gusta’ Award has been presented to MaltaPost for the Company which operates in the most inclusive manner in respect of its Tanseana Project mainly based in Gozo
MaltaPost said that most of the staff members engaged on this project are persons with various forms of disability who reside in Gozo and work at Xewkija.
The company employs around 55 persons with disability at the Centre, trained to acquire the necessary skills to ensure that high service quality levels are maintained.
It explained that with the support of JobsPlus and the Lino Spiteri Foundation these employees carry out work related to Document Management services.
MaltaPost continued by saying that it has undertaken this project in “the spirit of promoting inclusivity understanding, supporting, enhancing and focusing primarily on the abilities of disabled persons.”
This Award is organised by the Parliamentary Secretariat for Persons with Disability and Active Ageing and originally, this award was initially created as a celebration of the work, commitment and dedication being taken by the people involved in the disability sector; and this year a prize has been introduced for the most inclusive company.
MaltaPost said that the 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. As well as this, the core principle that guides these Awards is to have a society whereby persons with a disability participate actively in the community.
MaltaPost concluded by saying that it is “very proud to have been the first company to have won this prestigious award and looks forward to strengthening the ‘Tanseana Project’ to further help persons with disability.”
