Cafe Coffee Day has large number of branches across the country. The demand for brewmasters is so high that they were always short-staffed when it came to brewmaster's position. EnAble India did the initial job analysis and found the brewmaster job most suitable for the hearing impaired candidates, provided we find the right workplace solution. Once the workplace solution was identified, eligible candidates were identified, trained and placed. Today, nearly 120 hearing impaired brewmasters are working in Cafe Coffee Day all over the country. Read about our collaboration with Cafe Coffee Day.
