Sarthak adopts a threefold strategy to facilitate sustainable employment of differently able individuals. It involves job mapping, in house placement openings, and job fair for people with disability.
Job mapping involves the process, wherein, job opportunities for people with disability are tapped in the organization. And, then based on mapping of job requirements and the ability of differently able candidates, candidates are placed. More than 20 organizations have actively participated in this initiative till date.
Under, In-House placement, candidates are placed in various organization by matching the requirements of company and individual’s profile. Under this process, employment team acts as an interface between hiring corporate and differently able candidates. A follow-up is also maintained with the placed candidates, to be acquainted with their possible concerns and its management. Till date 2400 in-house placements have been done at Sarthak.
Third strategy followed at Sarthak encompasses Job fairs wherein, a single platform is provided to differently able candidates and companies to aid the process of employment. In this initiative, Sarthak team provides companies the list of prospective candidates matching to their profiles and then candidates are selected through on the spot interviews. 87 such job fairs have been organized till date throughout India across 21 states, successfully.

Q1: If we hire person with disability, we have to sacrifice some quality, productivity, or efficiency.
If a hiring process focuses on employing someone with a disability in order to fill a quota, it will most likely not get the RIGHT person for the process. Not every person with a disability is suitable for every job type, and not every job type is suitable for all persons with disabilities.
If an employer is thinking & sacrificing quality, productivity or efficiency after employing a person with disability, either they have the wrong person for that role (same as with non-disabled people), or there is a barrier that has stopped the person with disability from performing.
So in that case we have to identify barriers and knocking them down.

Q3: What is "reasonable accommodation?"
