Why hire someone with a disability
The bigger question is, why not hire someone with a disability.
This Deloitte report shows that giving work to someone with a disability is not just good for the soul, it’s good for business.
Evidence has shown that when a business hires someone living with a disability or illness they tend to:
- Take fewer days off
- Take less sick leave and have fewer work health and safety problems
- Remain employed in the job for longer
- Build strong relationships with colleagues, customers, and management at all levels
- Promote and contribute to positive workplace morale
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 to their community.
“The economic modeling presented in this report suggests that closing the gap between labor market participation rates and unemployment rates for people with and without disabilities by one third would result in an increase of countries GDP over the next decade in real dollar terms.”
Being a disability inclusive employer is a fantastic way to build workplace diversity, boost staff morale and loyalty, enhance a company’s brand image, and promote business and customer relationships. It’s one way that even your business can be bigger than employment.
