Are you looking to support your DE&I strategy?
We have got you covered! Our sister company, AimBig Employment, specialises in providing recruitment solutions for organisations, helping them to build diversity, equity and inclusion within the workplace. With one in five people in Australia living with some form of disability, and 2.5 million working-age Australians (15-64 years) with disability, a diverse workforce that includes people with disability can bring new perspectives, ideas, and problem-solving skills to the table.
With the help of registered Disability Employment Services (DES) providers like AimBig Employment and government initiatives, you can make your workplace more inclusive and welcoming to everyone. The following areas are how AimBig Employment can help you achieve this:
They have eligible job-ready job seekers Australia-wide
Working with a registered DES provider like AimBig Employment is an excellent way to ensure your prospective employees are pre-screened and job-ready. AimBig Employment has a vast database of over 6,000 eligible job seekers Australia-wide with disabilities, making it easier to find suitable candidates when and where you need them.
They can help you leverage Government initiatives
The Australian government offers various initiatives and support for employers who hire and retain people with disabilities. You can attract and retain a diverse workforce by taking advantage of these initiatives. AimBig Employment can help you identify which initiatives are available to your business and guide you through the process of accessing them.
They can help with adjustments in the workplace
To accommodate employees with disabilities, ensure appropriate workplace modifications are made. These adjustments can make it easier for individuals with disabilities to thrive in your organisation. AimBig Employment can assist you in identifying necessary modifications and accessing the Australian Government’s Employment Assistance Fund (EAF) for financial support.
They regularly meet to measure and track progress
Regularly measuring and tracking your progress on disability inclusion efforts is crucial. It allows you to identify what’s working, what’s not, and where improvements are needed. AimBig Employment will also provide ongoing support and check-ins to ensure your efforts remain effective.
