  3. Partnerships: Partnering with organizations such as Purple Tuesday, NOWPDP, and Connect Hear, which focus on the inclusion and empowerment of PWDs.
  4. Sensitization Training: Conducting regular sensitization training for all employees across the country to ensure workforce understanding of PWDs’ needs and requirements.
  5. Accessible Services: Launching model branches designed to cater to the needs of PWD customers, offering accessible services and facilities.
  6. Accessibility Standards: Ensuring physical premises and digital platforms are accessible, user-friendly, and compliant with international accessibility standards.
  7. Assistive Technologies: Providing assistive technologies and tools to employees with disabilities to enhance their efficiency and comfort.
  8. Dedicated Support System: Establishing a dedicated support system within the organization to address the unique needs and concerns of PWD staff members.
  9. Community Outreach: Actively participating in community outreach programs and collaborating with local organizations to create awareness about disability inclusion.

Phased Approach to Quota Fulfillment

NBP’s plan to meet the 2% quota involves a phased approach, including policy framework development, internships, batch recruitment, and collaboration with organizations to source candidates.

Commitment to Diversity and Inclusion

NBP recognizes the importance of diversity and inclusion as part of its social responsibility. By empowering PWDs, NBP aims to enhance its organizational culture, promote innovation, and foster a more compassionate and understanding workforce, contributing to a brighter and more inclusive future for everyone.
