Over the past 10 years, the proportion of disabled people employed in Hungary has risen from 18% to 44%; however, the EU average is still slightly below 50%, according to the head of human resources at Prohuman Béla Ignácz, writes profitline.hu.
Ignácz emphasized that in 2021, 155,000 people with altered working capacity were employed in the country. He added that in many areas, creating a higher proportion of positions for people with disabilities could also be a solution for companies facing labor shortages.
For those with disabilities, working and making a living gives them a sense of belonging to the community and reinforces them as valuable members of society.
At the same time, their presence also contributes to a more open, inclusive workplace, the company said in a statement.
