The Inclusive Workplace Award is perfect for employers who have a commitment to recruiting and supporting disabled employees and people with a long-term health condition or additional support need.

By achieving the Inclusive Workplace Award employers will:

  • have increased skills and knowledge, and feel more confident about employing and supporting disabled people
  • create supportive workplaces where everyone can contribute their talents and skills
  • access a free and comprehensive recruitment service, matching the right job seeker to the job
  • gain productive relationships and achieve recognition for engaging with supported employment services.

The award allows you to assess your current practices and identify required improvements and changes. It is designed to be a straightforward process that involves pulling together information you already have and being supported with any additional information required.

Managers Training
As part of the process we ask employers to nominate managers and supervisors within the organisation to participate in the free Inclusive Workplace Award training.

Those nominated should have direct responsibility for managing staff and/or recruitment. The session looks at challenging assumptions and attitudes and allows people to discuss their gaps in experience when it comes to recruiting and managing disabled people.
