Employing People With Disabilities

At TURSA, we have a team of highly experienced staff providing disability recruitment services. The benefits of employing people with disabilities are becoming increasingly well known, with the Australia Government Job Access organisation noting the following:

  • Worker’s compensation costs for people with disability are as low as 4% of the workers’ compensation costs for other employees.
  • Employment costs for people with disability can be as low as 13% of the employment costs for other employees.
  • People with disability generally take fewer days off, take less sick leave, and stay in jobs longer than other workers.
  • Once in the right job, people with a disability perform as well as other employees.
  • People with disability boost staff morale and enhance a sense of teamwork.
  • Hiring people with disability enhances an organisation’s image in the general community.
  • People with disability build strong connections with customers.

TURSA can assist employers hiring people with a disability by providing the following:

  • Access to thousands of TURSA participants with a disability across our network of sites.
  • Support is provided to both the employer and TURSA participant before, during, and after the recruitment process.
  • The Disability Employment Service program provides access to generous wage subsidy support.  Subsidies are funded by the Australian Government and managed by TURSA.

Key Benefits To Consider:

  • Productive: People with disabilities perform equally to other employees when placed in the right job.
  • Reliable: People with disabilities stay in jobs longer, take less sick leave, and take fewer days off than other workers.
  • Safe: Workers with disabilities are no more at risk of injury at work than other employees.
  • Affordable: Recruitment costs are lower. TURSA can facilitate any available government wage subsidies and TURSA assistance.
  • Good for business: People with disabilities build strong connections with customers. They boost staff morale and loyalty. Teamwork is enhanced, and costs are lower due to reduced staff turnover, recruitment, and retraining costs. Hiring people with disabilities also adds to the organisation’s overall diversity and builds the company’s image among its staff, community, and customers. When your workforce reflects the community it serves, there is a greater chance of delivering inclusive services to all.
