The main objective of the PwD Employ project is to favour the recruitment of people with disabilities, contributing to facilitate their professional and personal development through the training of the collectives who work in the field of the human resources management.

The people who are responsible for the recruitment of the people with physical disabilities (human resource managers, trainers specialised in human resource management) will the main beneficiaries of this PEV. This PEV will allow them to improve their knowledge, raise the awareness and change their attitudes for recruitment of people with disabilities in view to improve business management in relation to the participation and integration of this people in the labour market as a consequence of the efficient recruitment they will develop. Also, the special PEV is designed to support companies, organisations who are responsible for the recruitment of the people with physical disabilities (recruitment companies) in providing equal opportunities for employment in view to promote the integration of target people in the labour market through increasing their employment rate.
