Desk Report: Meghna Executive Holdings (MEH), is honoured with the prestigious “Marks & Start Award” from Marks & Spencer for the contribution to empowering the lives of disabled people.
MEH began recruiting physically challenged workers from CRP as part of this initiative in 2015. Mr Mofidul Islam, an HR officer in the Meghna Knit Composite Ltd. HR department, was the first beneficiary of this initiative, and there are now 40 beneficiaries working in four different units. In addition, 16 beneficiaries were recruited in 2021, with a goal of recruiting 30 beneficiaries in 2022. Aside from that, MEH is involved in a number of M&S projects aimed at improving the living conditions of the employees, their families, and the local community.
Marks & Start is an employability scheme that helps people who are at a disadvantage in their job searches, regardless of the prejudices they face on a daily basis. In 2004 M&S (Marks & Spencer) established an objective to support disadvantaged people in finding work through our Marks & Start employability program. The current format of the program has been in place since 2014, supporting approximately 1,200 young people each year
