Making the workplace accessible

Building the best workplace

Everyone wins when you have a workforce that reflects the community it serves – from your colleagues, to the community and your organisation. Employing people with disability boosts workplace morale and improves productivity.

Making this possible may need adjustments, and new approaches to the way you do things. Adjustments may be physical, communications technology or simply providing information. 

Adjustments allow staff with disability to perform to the best of their ability for their role. You can help fund adjustments through the JobAccess Employee Assistance fund. This fund can also be accessed for adjustments for staff who may have acquired a disability during employment.   

To find out more about adjustments, see:

We host a number of events across the NSW public sector for employees and managers to learn more about best practice when it comes to disability employment. It also provides an opportunity to learn from your peers about their insights and successes on disability, accessibility, and promoting the recruitment and retention of people with disability.
