Do you want to learn more about hiring people with a disability? AccessAbility Day is your chance!

Posted: 16th Nov

Woodridge and Browns Plains employers have the chance to learn more about working with people disability next month, through the Australian Government’s AccessAbility Day initiative.

Though AccessAbility Day, delivered 4-8 December 2017, businesses can experience what it’s like to work with people with disability for a day, supported by Disability Employment Services.

Woodridge and Browns Plains are two of only nine locations in Australia chosen for the initiative, which provides an opportunity for local businesses to:

  • access a talent pool of capable people who are keen to work
  • promote an inclusive workplace
  • learn more about working with people with disability and Australian Government support available for your business.

Recent research from the Business Council of Australia and the Australian Network on Disability shows businesses employing people with disability consistently report competitive advantage, improved productivity and a better workplace culture.

As part of the AccessAbility initiative, placements of people with disability will be for one day during the week of 4-8 December 2017. You may decide to host one placement or more.

A Disability Employment Services (DES) provider can help you plan, organise and facilitate the placement.
