Workplace Adjustments

Research Report

As part of Australian Disability Network’s thought leadership commitment to our members, and the disability employment sector, we recognised a need for organisations to better understand Workplace Adjustments in Australia.

The report from our recent research into Workplace Adjustments will provide organisations with a better understanding of lived experience of workplace adjustments in Australia from the perspectives of job seekers and employees with disability and organisations.

This research provides an evidence base for organisations seeking to:

  • Develop, improve, and sustain workplace adjustments practices through policy and processes.
  • Proactively provide multiple accessible opportunities for employees and jobseekers to engage with organisations’ workplace adjustments information and processes
  • Influence attitudinal changes at organisational level and beyond.

The report is available in difference formats:

Critical factors for success

The 7 critical factors for success of workplace adjustments are based on iterative thematic analysis of what people with disability and organisations said in surveys, interviews and focus groups about their experiences. This practical evidence base is intended to support organisations to be confident about employing people with disability to have long and satisfying careers. 

Read more in this  guide and infographic that provide a detailed overview of each critical success factor.
