Siew Yin Chan
Team Lead – Abled Online
Job is not just to earn a living but a vehicle for meaningful life. Home-based jobs offered by Genashtim allow persons with disabilities (PWDs) to gain dignity. For me, being financially independent and productive at work gives a sense of purpose. My life is more meaningful when I am able to help people learn via online platforms and to reach out to my colleagues who are PWDs. With a social-impact company like Genashtim and the aids of information technologies, a job becomes fulfilling when I could work at the comfort of my home and take care of my health at the same time.
Role in the business
My current role in Genashtim is Team Lead, assisting in managing the operation of the IT department. I am also involved in e-learning projects which help clients transition traditional classroom-based training/learning to online basis. On occasion, I help the Company conduct research in IT-related products.
