Minister Justyne Caruana at Xewkija Document Management Centre

Minister for Gozo, Justyne Caruana together with Parliamentary Secretary for Persons with Disability and Active Ageing, Anthony Agius Decelis visited the MaltaPost Document Management Centre in Xewkija, Gozo.

MaltaPost has employed persons with disabilities to work within this centre while Jobs Plus and the Lino Spiteri Foundation facilitated the recruitment and training process. So far some 55 persons have been trained to acquire the necessary skills to ensure that high service quality levels are maintained.

MaltaPost Chairman, Joseph Said commented: "....we consider it our duty to ensure that, as far as possible, our work processes are such that they may also be performed by persons who may not enjoy full physical capabilities. It is this philosophy which spurred us to create this project that is now providing employment opportunities for persons with disabilities".

"Merely employing the number of disabled persons as dictated by the law was not enough for MaltaPost. Together with Jobs Plus, the Lino Spiteri Foundation and a number of dedicated job coaches, we have managed so far to employ and train some 55 persons in Gozo who now have a stable job and earn a respectable wage" explained Joseph Said.

Various private companies and entities have released valuable office space by entrusting their documents to this centre, which apart from archiving, also offers scanning, digitizing, conversion of documents to electronic form as well as final destruction by shredding.

The centre in Xewkija is ISO 9001-certified and an affiliated member of the National Association for Information Destruction, the Professional Records and Information Services Management and of the Information and Records Management Society.
