BLF connects a blind person with executives from leading Czech companies
Visually impaired people now have the opportunity to closely learn how to work on a normal working day in companies such as Seznam.cz and the Ceska sporitelna. In cooperation with SONS , Business Leaders Forum brought together the visually impaired and organized The Magnificent Five project. Top five visually impaired people will try managerial positions for a predetermined period of time as shading Managers, which will be in close contact.
Tomáš Novotný, manager of internal communication of Seznam.cz, evaluated the project as follows:
„Seznam.cz is cooperating with the White Crayon charity, and if possible, always glad to help our partners’ interesting ideas. The Magnificent Five project breaks down barriers that can bring in our company an interesting experience and courageous trainees. I’m curious myself, as we are preparing for this collaboration. I also believe that we can arrange a rewarding experience for our colleagues to meet a blind or visually impaired person so closely in real life.”
