Why Choose Disability Employment?
Diverse and Innovative Workforce:
By embracing disability employment, your business can benefit from a diverse pool of talents, perspectives, and experiences. This diversity fuels creativity, innovation, and problem-solving, leading to improved business outcomes and a competitive edge in the market. People managing disability have learnt additional skills and creative ways to think and achieve their goals.
Studies have consistently shown that inclusive workplaces have higher employee satisfaction and morale levels. Employees who feel valued and supported are more engaged, motivated, and committed to their work. In turn, they are boosting productivity and driving business success.
Positive Public Image:
Demonstrating a commitment to disability employment benefits your business internally and enhances your brand reputation externally. Being an inclusive employer sends a powerful message to customers, stakeholders, and the wider community, showcasing your dedication to social responsibility and equal opportunities.
Additional Wage Subsidies: Removing Onboarding Barriers
To further encourage businesses to embrace disability employment, various wage subsidy programs are available to alleviate any perceived onboarding barriers. These subsidies can provide financial support and incentives to help your organisation successfully integrate individuals with disabilities into your workforce. Benefits include:
Wage subsidies ranging up to $10,000 may be available to businesses that hire eligible individuals into ongoing jobs.
TURSA Client Support Fund:
The TURSA CSF is a valuable resource for participants who are experiencing financial hardship. The program can help participants to meet their basic needs and get back on their feet.
NDIS supports in employment, also known as the National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS), is a program designed to provide individuals with disabilities access to meaningful and sustainable employment opportunities. The NDIS recognizes that many individuals with disabilities face unique challenges in finding and maintaining employment, and this program aims to address those barriers. Supported employment offers tailored support and assistance to individuals, including job coaching, skills development, workplace accommodations, and ongoing support to ensure successful integration and job retention. By providing a supportive environment and individualized assistance, NDIS supported employment promotes independence, inclusion, and self-determination for individuals with disabilities, empowering them to thrive in the workforce.
At TURSA, we understand the value of these wage subsidies and supports. We can guide you through the application process, connect you with the right partners and ensure a smooth and seamless transition for your business and the new employee.
