In support of the Shanghai Municipal Government, transcosmos China has always been working on community welfare programs, thereby fulfilling its corporate social responsibilities. Since 2016, the company has been executing “Spring Breeze Plan,” its employment support program, with the aim of supporting disabled persons in finding quality jobs with a focus on laying a platform for highly specialized jobs designed specifically for disabled persons. For disabled persons who wish to work, a disabled-friendly workplace, clean and organized facilities and a comprehensive training system are essential. Recognizing this, transcosmos China not only has disabled-friendly facilities in place including accessible restrooms, but also offers employee training courses and gives detailed work instructions whilst offering consultations for both work-related and daily life issues in order to let its disabled employees fit into their workplace. transcosmos China has been and will continue to drive and further enhance the “Spring Breeze Plan” as a continuous project.
In 2019, transcosmos China conducted two work experience projects for disabled persons in partnership with “Shanghai Disabled Persons’ Federation,” an organization that runs support projects for disabled persons, and “Lequn Social Work Office,” a social welfare services organization. And in July 2019, the company took a tour to Shanghai Zoo with 35 families with disabled children in partnership with “Warm Charity,” a social welfare association, and donated stationery and other items to the association.
