Our tailored support service helps to overcome these factors, which enables job seekers to bring their enthusiasm, skills and talents into your business and participate in the workforce.

With a focus on your business requirements, we match the right person to the job and provide ongoing support to ensure a successful and sustainable employment outcome.

And there are great benefits for your business too, as found by a Deakin University study:

  • 90% of employees with disability achieve productivity rates equal to or greater than other workers
  • 98% have average or superior safety records
  • 86% have an average or superior attendance record
  • Employees with disability average one sixth the recorded OHS incidents of employees without disability
  • The average recruitment cost of an employee with a disability is 13% of that of an employee without disability.

What is a disability?

Some people are born with a disability, while others have spent most of their lives without their disability. This may result from an accident, illness, congenital or genetic disorder – there are many different kinds of disability.

A disability may be visible or hidden, may be permanent or temporary, and may have minimal or substantial impact on a person’s abilities.

People with disability are represented right throughout our community.

We all have a role to play in improving attitudes and ensuring people with disability can pursue their interests, enjoy the same opportunities as everyone else and participate fully in our community.
