“A job for a person with disability isn’t just about money. It’s a sign of independence and a way to let the world know we’re not a burden on society, but an asset.”– GSA Associate
People power your organisation
Don’t limit your choices to find the right people. 2.1 million Australians of working age are people with disability, and only 48% of those have employment., compared to 80% of working-aged people without disability. The benefits of hiring a person with disability are tangible. Could your workplace recruitment process possibly be excluding future valuable employees?
An untapped talent pool
Creating a diverse workforce creates loyalty and commitment in your workforce. A person with disability stays with a company 28% longer on average than an employee without disability. 90% of employees with disability record equal or greater productivity than other workers, and 86% have an equal or better attendance record.
Staff diversity encourages customer diversity. Diverse staff helps your business understand disability needs and can promote a competitive edge and growth in your market share.
Your comprehensive review
We’ll assess your full recruitment pipeline, from internal procedures and how a candidate will experience the recruitment process, to ongoing support of a person with disability once they’re employed. We’ll identify the barriers that a candidate might come across, and work on the unconscious bias that can sit behind decision-making and staff retention.
Actionable ways forward
For our recommendations to be most impactful (and easy for you to put in place) we’ll show you ways to update your existing recruitment pipeline for a barrier-free process.
Perhaps it’s becoming more aware about the way people with disability might view your job descriptions or advertising. Or understanding how a person with disability might experience interviews and onboarding. Or giving the recruitment or hiring team the confidence to welcome a person with disability into your organisation.
You’ll be in a stronger position to find the best talent, and to push your business forward.
