أطلقت شركة أخطبوط – الشبكة الوظيفية مبادرة الحملة التوعوية “#العمل_حق_للجميع”  والتي تهدف الى تعريف المجتمع الأردني بأهمية الأشخاص ذوي الاعاقة في سوق العمل وفي المجتمع ككل من خلال تسليط الضوء على تأهيلهم العلمي، وظيفتهم الحالية أو الوظيفة التي يطمحون اليها بالإضافة الى التعريف عن قدراتهم ومؤهلاتهم العملية.

هذه الحملة هي رسالة وطنية من جميع الأشخاص ذوي الإعاقة إلى المجتمع الأردني بمختلف مؤسساته الخاصة والحكومية تهدف إلى زيادة مشاركهتم في سوق العمل وإعطائهم كامل حقوقهم الوظيفية وعدم حرمانهم من الإندماج حيث أنهم قادرين على العطاء كغيرهم من أقرانهم.

نظراً للحاجة الماسة الى مبادرات تساهم في سد الفجوة في معدلات البطالة بشكل عام وضرورة استحداث برامج وآليات جديدة لتوظيف الأشخاص ذوي الاعاقة وخلق بيئة تسهم في زيادة عطائهم في أماكن عملهم، نظمت أخطبوط هذه الحملة كجزء من معرض توظيف أخطبوط “معرض توظيف أخطبوط للأشخاص ذوي الاعاقة 2016.”
