110 employers represented by the President’s Office, Public Service Division, Singapore Hotel Association, National Council of Social Service and the Singapore Centre for Social Enterprise committed to build a more inclusive workforce for people with disabilities by signing the President's Challenge Enabling Employment Pledge at the launch of the President’s Challenge 2020 (PC2020) on 11 March 2020 at the Enabling Village. The employers across the public, private and people (3P) sectors, including 106 SHA hotel members, were among the first to pledge their support for this national movement led by President’s Challenge.

Guest-of-Honour President Halimah Yacob announced during the launch that PC2020 will focus on supporting initiatives that empower persons with disabilities, so as to bring about sustained improvements in their quality of life. Employers were called upon to adopt an inclusive mindset, create barrier-free workplace environments and implement supportive employment policies for employees with disabilities. Through the Enabling Employment Pledge, President’s Challenge hopes to encourage more employers to take the first step and open their doors to persons with disabilities.


Employers who sign the Pledge can look forward to greater support in their effort to train, hire and integrate employees with disabilities. They will join a network of like-minded employers and have access to a whole suite of best practices that can be shared amongst themselves.
