BALI – Alaya Hotels & Resorts has proudly established a partnership with DNetwork to accept and mentor employees with disabilities. This was confirmed during an official visit to Alaya Resort Ubud by DNetwork’s project manager, Mrs. Nanin together with 36 disabled participants from Pradnyagama School and SLB N 2 Sidakarya on Tuesday, 29th January 2019.
The event started with a warm welcome being extended to everyone in attendance, followed by a speech and a short presentation about the Alaya Hotels & Resorts concept. A tour was then conducted as an introduction to Alaya Resort Ubud and its five-star facilities. In an effort to establish good relations within the workplace, prospective employees with varying disabilities were invited to enjoy lunch alongside other staff members. This was an opportunity for direct engagement and the event proceeded with an informative question/answer session
DNetwork is non-profit organization founded in 2013. It was primarily established to help source and develop opportunities and offer workplace solutions to a largely forgotten community of disabled people.
The collaboration between Alaya Hotels & Resorts and DNetwork supports disability and inclusion employment efforts through the establishment of public/private partnerships in local communities. As an employer consortium, Alaya is now committed to implementing or expanding programs to employ individuals with disabilities. An agreement has been made to share ownership of the cluster initiative, and be accountable for hiring goals, and regular communication to share best practices.
Alaya Hotels & Resorts is now entrusted to serve as a role model of community partnership to coordinate services for job-seekers with disabilities, with a single point of contact for employers. This also means functioning as a talent pool to connect among employers, public and private agencies, and schools to reach young adults with disabilities who are in transition from school to work.
This has all come about under the banner of the Alaya Cares program to expand employment opportunities for individuals with disabilities and accelerate the adoption of disability inclusion initiatives. This alliance allows Alaya Hotels & Resorts and DNetwork to work together in new and innovative ways.
As a premier local brand, Alaya Hotels & Resorts will get on board by accepting more people with disabilities and nurture talent to help develop future career prospects. There will be distinct a focus on inspiring other corporations to create sustainable hiring initiatives based on this ongoing collaboration. This sustainability program is an opportunity to express gratitude for all of the blessings bestowed by God Almighty. It also reinforces the resort’s commitment to Tri Hita Karana, a Balinese Hindu lifestyle philosophy that is all about maintaining a harmonious balance between mankind (Pawongan), the environment (Palemahan) and God Almighty (Parahyangan).
