Promotion of inclusion and labour diversity in Chile: “Open the mind” and “build spaces that embrace talent”
HK Human Capital – InterSearch Chile signs an alliance with InclusivApp to promote the inclusion of people with disabilities in the executive labour market.
The agreement “stems from the concern to reach professionals with some degree of disability so that we can include them in our searches,” explains Leslie Cooper, CEO and founder of HK.
The co-founder of InclusivApp, Karla Araya, emphasized that she seeks to encourage companies to promote “the effective visibility and appreciation of the talents of people with disabilities, presenting themselves as an opportunity for the business ecosystem.”
InclusivApp is a mobile application that facilitates the movements of people with disabilities in the cities and also certifies companies suitable to hire them. HK Human Capital signed the alliance with them to promote the professional inclusion of this sector of population in the labour market of executives.
“This alliance was born out of the concern to reach professionals with some degree of disability in order to include them in our searches” explains Leslie Cooper, CEO and founder of HK, who adds: “Since some years we have set out to be more inclusive and diverse in our shortlist of candidates. However, there was a group – professionals with disabilities – we were not reaching. We got in touch with various people and organizations and finally we reached Karla Araya, a tremendous professional with dreams and concerns similar to ours”.
The co-founder of InclusivApp, Karla Araya, highlighted that “our alliance allows us to generate a collaborative bond whose purpose is to transform the non-inclusive organizational culture, towards the effective visibility and valuation of the talents of people with disabilities, presenting itself as an opportunity for the business ecosystem”.
She also highlighted that “people with disabilities have already participated in the headhunting processes led by HK and from the very beginning the alliance was developed quickly. The main engine has been the passion that both teams have for inclusion, materializing in the creation of scenarios that promote equal opportunities”.
