“When I meet someone for the first time, one of the first questions I am asked is “what do I do for a living?””.
Employment is not only about financial reward, but also about becoming part of a team, a contributor to society, living with dignity and becoming independent. We all feel a sense of fulfilment that comes from our identity with work, and our role within a team and with others.
At the same time, in order to contribute to the economy, fair and gainful employment is a must. Our sense of achievement and independence needs to be balanced with our sense of worth, that is directly related to being rewarded financially for our productivity. The recent enforcement of the “Quotas”, a ruling that requires businesses to employ a % of their workforce from the vulnerable groups, has triggered the realisation that support structures are required to sustain employment and create the match between the employee and the company.
The Lino Spiteri Foundation aims to create opportunities for this to happen. For employees to fit within a supportive working environment, and for employers to find value in it’s productive and dedicated employees. For more information on how the Lino Spiteri Foundation can help you, either as an employer or as a potential employee, please visit the appropriate pages, or get in touch with our dedicated team.
