At The Personnel Group, we believe that by supporting employers to be ‘disability confident’, we are helping build diversity in both the workplace and community.
One in five Australians has a disability or mental health condition – that’s a huge untapped talent pool!
The Personnel Group can help you access a wide range of training and financial incentives to support your employment of a person with a disability or mental health condition, including:
- Mental Health Workplace Training – providing you, your supervisors and staff with specialist training in mental health awareness, helping identify and support a co-worker who is experiencing a mental health episode and a deteriorating disability.
- Disability Action Plans – working with you to: understand your staffs current knowledge and support of employing a person with a disability or mental health condition; identify roles and reviewing role profiles for positions that would be suitable; assisting with policy development to support a Disability Employment Strategy for your organisation; establishing an action plan of things you could do, should you so desire, to make your workplace more disability friendly.
- Workplace Modifications – in many instances the only barrier you may have to employing a person with a disability is a physical one! Workplace Mods, an Australian Government scheme will financially support the redesign of jobs or workplaces to enable you to employ a person with a disability or mental health condition
- Disability Awareness Training – a short 1 – 2 hour basic awareness training for co-workers and supervisors.
83% of people with a disability or mental health condition have walked away from an inaccessible service or business. Remember, it makes good sense to have a disability friendly business – people with a disability or mental health condition contribute billions to our economy – don’t miss out on this opportunity to increase your business activity.
