Nagsimula ang “AutiSM at Work” sa Savemore Market Light Residences noong 2016, at sinundang maisagawa sa SM Supermarket Aura and Savemore Market Mezza.

Umani naman ito ng papuri mula sa netizens.
“Thank you SM for creating opportunities for the differently-abled! God bless!”
“Yes! Finally! This program will give those in the spectrum the opportunity to work, experience the mainstream and make the community more inclusive! We need more establishments here in the Philippines to adapt this kind of program.”
“They also have the same program at SM San Mateo. Kudos to SM! Thanks for giving our differently–abled children a chance and opportunity to make themselves productive when they grow up. We hope it’s a good start for other company as well to hire them for their skills.”
“Good job SM Molino in making that move. They deserve the chance for equal opportunity. They have the warmest and kindest smiles. Hope other SM branches follow too.”
Pagbati, SM Molino! Tunay na thumbs up tayo diyan!
