Benefits of employing people with disability

One in five Australians lives with a disability. This includes those living with mental health conditions.

People with disabilities or diagnosed illnesses can bring a range of talents, skills and abilities to the workplace. Many people with disabilities or health barriers hold senior managerial positions or are tertiary or trade-qualified. In all areas of the workforce, people with disabilities can be successful, including traineeships and apprenticeships. People with disabilities are employed across many occupations.

In a business sense, they often take less sick leave and have lower absenteeism than other employees. An Australian Government review found that workers with disabilities are no more likely to be injured at work than other employees.*

Principal of Employment

The principles of employment are the same for people with disability as those for people without disability. The important factor is whether the person has the skills and ability to do the job. However, employing someone with disability can benefit employers by:

Building Staff morale and teamwork
Increasing customer service and loyalty
Attracting and building a strong workforce
