Objectives of HeePD?
We seek to equalize, the job opportunity, Job Accessibility and job creation playing field for People with Disabilities with each HeePD Hub with interviews, training, jobs onsite with transport to each Hub with ZiPD our inclusive transport solution for People with Disabilities .
We have 8 Ecosystems that make up HeePD:

It is our vision to normalise people with disabilities in the workplace with a 3rd of the staff having a disability at the moment at HeePD. Unconscious Bias Prevails. We have 7,5 % with a disability yet less than 1% in corporate South Africa. Therefore HeePD seeks to create a culture of entrepreneurship and job creation with BPO, combining transport, jobs, training and interviews close to home or in residential locations underserved and inadequate accessible transport for people with disabilities.
HeePD has a Project Office to implement with cross functional management and Board support. 4 Directors have various types of disabilities including our HeePD Project Manager who has a physical disability like myself, CEO Mr Riad Masoet.
