Amazon India Collaborates With Five States To Provide Training And Jobs To Individuals With Disabilities
Amazon India has teamed up with five Indian state governments—Haryana, Maharashtra, Gujarat, Karnataka, and Tamil Nadu—to help people with disabilities (PwDs). They signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) that will last until 2026. The goal is to provide job training and job opportunities for PwDs, in line with the Prime Minister’s vision of inclusive development.
Amazon India’s plan involves giving support and training to PwDs in their operations network, including fulfilment centres, sortation centres, and delivery stations.This shows their commitment to offering equal chances to people who are often overlooked.
Amazon India has also put in place special arrangements for workers with hearing and speech problems, like the ‘SignAble’ virtual interpreter platform and safety measures. They have even created a ‘Silent Delivery Station’ and training programmes to empower people with hearing issues, helping them become more independent and grow personally.
State representatives from Haryana, Karnataka, and Maharashtra praised Amazon India’s efforts to include PwDs in their workforce. This aligns with their states’ goals of giving meaningful opportunities to this part of the population. This partnership is a step towards making sure everyone has a fair shot at success.
