EuroCham Breakfast Talk

June 28 @ 7:30 am - 10:00 am

$15

The Value Of Inclusion

Soon all businesses will be required by Cambodian law to hire a certain number of people with disabilities and to have business environments suitable for customers with disabilities. Will you be ready?

THIS BREAKFAST TALK IS FOR:
▪ HR and compliance managers
▪ Hospitality & restaurant entrepreneurs and executives
▪ SMEs that see the value in CSR practices
▪ Any business with more than 100 staff in Cambodia

PART ONE: UPCOMING PRAKAS
The much-talked about upcoming Prakas will be administered by the Disability Action Council, and at this talk Ministry officials will clarify policy and answer questions about accessible workplaces.

PART TWO: BUSINESS ADVANTAGES
You might not know it, but 1.) Making accessibility modifications to your business isn’t difficult and 2.) recent data shows that hiring people with disabilities (PWDs) brings increased productivity (about 20%), decreased employee turnover and training costs, and access to untapped creativity and problem solving. Hiring a more diverse range of employees is a strategic business decision, not just an ethical one.

TOPICS
▪ Regulation regarding disabilities at your business
▪ How this brings increased business to hospitality and restaurants
▪ The institutions handling these matters
▪ Practical, easy ways to be compliant
▪ How hiring people with disabilities increases workplace output
▪ Q&A for making your business inclusive
