Rehab Management has been appointed as a Disability Employment Services (DES) Panel provider. Commencing 1 July 2018, Rehab Management will strengthen its work in the disability sector across Australia by supporting people with disability to gain and maintain meaningful employment.

“We are proud and privileged to be selected to partner with the Department of Social Services through the DES program” said the Managing Director, Marcella Romero.

“We’ve been providing extensive employment and rehabilitation services for more than 20 years, so we are well equipped to focus on client needs, across specialist and generalist streams. We’re also honoured to be selected as the only company to be servicing the physical disability (muscoskeletal) specialist stream, nationally”.

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. Some proven benefits for you are:

  • People with a disability take fewer days off
  • People with a disability have fewer work health and safety problems
  • People with a disability are more loyal to their employers

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.

Romero said that “her award-winning company with a strong local presence in every state and territory has been successful in the past through its commitment to a whole-person approach”.

“Our team of experienced professionals look forward to working across 58 employment service areas with the runs on the board to really add value to people with disabilities and employers by finding suitable and meaningful employment. Our services cover every contingency and are tailored and proactive, plus we invest heavily in technology to make sure we’re up to date and can Australians everywhere – urban, rural or remote.”

Rehab Management is in the process of expanding our disability division which may see development into a subsidiary company for our disability support services arm. Further details to be released prior to 1st July 2018.
