I Can! is thrilled that Capacity, trusting client and member of the Adcorp Holding Group, provided Mr Price with a staffing solution that included five of our graduated Deaf learners. MR Price has agreed on a pilot project to provide these learners with valuable onsite work experience in their distribution centre in River Horse Valley, KZN.
Monday the 4th of November was a memorable day for Nhlakanipho Walter Shezi, Mlungisi Mkhovu, Nkululeko Stanely Mthembu, Siyabonga Dlamini and Lungani Mthethwa when they met with the Capacity trainer Barbara Lawler and were taken through a formal induction process at the Mr Price distribution centre. The following four days included the actual training of picking and packing of apparel from large quantities for shipping to the various outlet stores.
The overall feedback received was very positive and subsequently Mr Price moved two candidates to their other larger site in central Durban and then another two additional learners this week.
“This is what we are striving to achieve……meaningful employment for as many of our candidates as we can!” Sushie Naidoo, National Recruitment Manager for I Can!
