Good for business
2.1 million working age Australians have a disability of some kind, meaning there is an untapped pool of talent waiting for you.
Research shows people with disability take fewer days off, less sick leave and stay in jobs longer.
Why employ people with disability?
Employment gives people a purpose in life, offers a meaningful connection within the community and creates financial and social independence. As a business owner, you have the opportunity to open up a world of possibilities for someone by hiring a person with a disability whilst gaining a valuable team member.
Research shows hiring people with disability is good for business. Effective management of workplace diversity is clearly linked to improvements in organisational performance, effectiveness and profitability.
Recruitment diversity is also associated with higher employee wellbeing, value and respect, and minimises risk of harrassment and discrimination.
An inclusive workplace with greater employee satisfaction leads to reduced turnover, increased creativity and innovation, and fuels team performance.
Hiring somebody with a disability is not only the right thing to do, but it also makes good business sense. See our Business Case for Hiring a Person with a Disability
