SM City Caloocan is Ready to Welcome All, Including Persons with Disabilities

On May 14, SM City Caloocan and SM Cares held a sensitivity training for employees at SM Supermalls’ newest mall, focusing on assisting persons with disabilities (PWDs). This initiative is part of SM’s commitment to creating inclusive and welcoming environments in all its malls.

The training included front liners, security guards, and other personnel, educating them on how to better serve PWD customers.

Engr. Bien Mateo, Director of SM Cares’ Program on PWDs, stressed the importance of such training. “It’s vital that our staff are equipped to make our malls safe and inclusive for everyone,” he said.
