Disability Union SAP Czech Republic
Creating true job opportunities, working conditions and development
About us
We are here to stimulate creation of jobs for disabled talents. We root for providing accommodations needed at work. We would like to see more of retaining & developing disabled whatever it takes.

Our motto goes as Enabling of disabled. We rely on Empathy and Inclusion – engage the talents however they look and feel.

We would like to achieve our vision by making sure companies really hire & retain disabled. We validate what kind of roles disabled get. We make sure that companies Provide extended & guaranteed training to compensate for education disabled miss.

Prejudice & fear not to meet expectations make employers hesitant to hire disabled. Business world suffers from having no true definition of diversity, which is unthinkable without disabled. We see a lot of ignorance towards office spaces and remote jobs – few are sufficiently customized for special people with the needs.

We'd like to have 3 out 4% disabled required by law – truly on payroll! We'll be happy to see disabled staying 70% of time other employees spend with companies. Now disabled stay twice shorter for various reasons. We would like to reach 75% level of university education for disabled (compared to other employees).

We'll work to achieve 80% satisfaction level on working conditions. Now it's less than 50% (numbers are taken from statistics and are not tied to any specific company)!
