The bigger question is, why not hire someone with a disability.

This Deloitte report shows that giving work to someone with disability is not just good for the soul, it’s good for business.

Evidence has shown that when a business hires someone living with disability or illness they tend to:

  • Take fewer days off
  • Take less sick leave and have fewer work health and safety problems
  • Remain employed in the job for longer
  • Build strong relationships with colleagues, customers and management at all levels
  • Promote and contribute to positive workplace morale

There are so many people with disability who are significantly under-represented in the workforce and just like any job seeker, they have valuable skills, qualifications and experience to offer society. That’s why we match the right person to the right job to take the hard work out of recruitment, allowing more and more people to make a positive contribution in their community.

 

“The economic modelling presented in this report suggests that closing the gap between labour market participation rates and unemployment rates for people with and without disabilities by one third would result in a cumulative $43 billion increase in Australia’s GDP over the next decade in real dollar terms.”

Why hire someone with a disability

Inclusive employment

Being a disability inclusive employer is a fantastic way to build workplace diversity, boost staff morale and loyalty, enhance a company’s brand image, and promote business and customer relationships. It’s one way that even your business can be bigger than employment.
