Chicago, Illinois (PressExposure) February 02, 2009 -- Liveadmins LLc announced a welcome addition to their hiring policy yesterday by stating that they would be looking into hiring people with disabilities who are able to perform basic computer and internet related functions. Mr. Farrakh, CEO of LiveAdmins, in a press conference called at their head office announced the "welcome change" would come into effect immediately.
"As far as we are concerned, if an employee with a disability is capable of typing and chatting, then they are no different than any other employees". Further elaborating, he went on to outline how LiveAdmins had instituted measures to make work opportunities available to people with varying types of disabilities, including by allowing people to work from home. "There is tremendous human potential that we have not realized" said Mr. Farrakh "it would be a crime to waste the abilities of these people and deny them the opportunity of making a career of what we have to offer".
LiveAdmins trainers are quite capable of training these people and LiveAdmins itself is ready to provide multi-dimensional support for any such staff members who face restraints due to disabilities. The work requires only that an internet connection be available (weather at the office or at home), and that the person in question be "able to type 35 words a minute or thereabouts". "We have hired people with physical disabilities before, all over the world and of varying backgrounds" he said, "the experiences were good, we felt that people with disabilities are highly efficient and quite competitive in the workplace, and we wish to encourage that".
Mr. Farrakh's efforts are laudable and would undoubtedly provide opportunities to many who need and deserve a chance.
