Metro Cash & Carry India catering to restaurants, offices, traders, caterers, hotels, and institutions is setting a benchmark through its diverse hiring process.

Across its Hyderabad stores located in Kukatpally and Shamshabad, the company has recruited 28 differently abled (deaf and dumb) people and plans to increase this number in the city, as well as across India.

Speaking to Telangana Today, the director & Head-Human Resources of Metro Cash & Carry India, Uday Khanna said that the initiative started after a successful outcome of a partnership with two local NGOs-Disability Rights Promotion International (DRPI) and Youth4Jobs.

For the first time in the country, the company has piloted hiring differently abled persons in the Hyderabad stores.

He informed that these people work in the replenishment sections of the stores and converse using sign language. Sharing that they were trained with the help of the NGOs, Mr Khanna said measures were taken to sensitise the management, supervisors and the team working with them in respective stores, through customised workshops.

Claiming that Telangana and Andhra Pradesh teams voluntarily came forward to encourage such hiring in their stores, he shared that the pilot project has proved that these individuals are productive adding that they are planning to build stores that are disabled-friendly to hire more people and give equal job opportunity.

The director further said that they are planning to extend the initiative and replicate it in at least 15-20 stores across India and plan to hire at least 100 differently abled persons in Telangana and AP - Vijayawada stores in the coming six months.
