Barriers and enablers to workplace adjustments
In this webinar, we went through the barriers and enablers to requesting and receiving workplace adjustments across the employee life cycle.
Our Research Lead, Dr. Catherine Maitland, presented the preliminary results of the Workplace Adjustments research that we have undertaken.
Our Project Manager, Peta Magick, spoke about the newly released How to Guides, which support organisations to implement and achieve disability employment targets. The four guides cover:
- capturing disability employment data
- offering and implementing Workplace Adjustments
- inclusive Recruitment Practices and Building a Disability Confident Culture
To access the guides please contact our memberexperienceteam@AusDN.org.au
Disability confidence through dignified design
Hear from Tom Bevan, Dignified Access Lead and Hayley Brooks, Customer and Employee Experience Lead as they share insights on the concepts of dignified access and co-design, highlighting the importance of embedding accessibility into all stages of the design of products, services and environments.
Dignified Access and co-design go beyond compliance with Australian Standards to provide safe, dignified and equitable access, whilst taking into consideration the user experience from the perspectives of locomotion, vision, reach and stretch, dexterity, thinking, communicating and hearing.
Resources to help you raise awareness
We created a range of resources to help your organisation have a better understanding of this globally celebrated day, and help you spread awareness on disability inclusion.
