What barriers might hinder the success of your project and how do you plan to overcome them?
We are seeing a tendency among some of the clients for whom we consult who have hired people with disabilities to trust us so completely as to leave the entire process to us. Our goal is to bring companies around to where they hire people with disabilities not because they are required to, but as part of their overall strategy, so the situation as outlined above could be considered our greatest failure.
In response, during the sales phase we propose to clients a time when we will withdraw our support, a ‘fading period’ that allows us to jointly set goals.
This has created a situation where support is unnecessary for almost all of the companies we work with, despite the existence of satellite offices set up to provide support. Our goal going forward to is to continue to implement this strategy.

How do you plan to strengthen your project in the next three years?
• Revisions may be made to Social Security as a result of the economic problems facing the government, which in turn might lead to a reduction in our company’s revenues. In order to overcome this problem, Wingle intends to employ thorough organizational research and an operational structure that does not use the social security system to lessen the percentage of the company’s revenue contributed by government subsidies to the extent that high quality programs can be offered even without government subsidies, and to put in place a management model with long-term potential. The expansion of operations to include the establishment of rehabilitative facilities for children with disabilities, for example, will enable us to increase our revenues from private-sector sources.
• Additionally, there is a substantial risk that government approvals might be rescinded should a situation arise where standards are unintentionally violated whether due to ignorance of the requirements or human moral hazard, no matter how much we strengthen our compliance regime. We have employed in-house counsel, strengthened our compliance-management systems, and conduct regular internal examinations in order to implement a management regime that is in complete conformity with the law.
