Inclusion is not just a buzzword; it’s a transformative force that can elevate your company above your competition.
By hiring people with disabilities, you foster an inclusive environment that promotes empathy among your staff. This trait is invaluable, especially when interacting with customers and clients.
A study by Deloitte also found that employees who felt their employer valued diversity were 80% more likely to consider their organisation high-performing. Inclusivity positively impacts morale and job satisfaction.
An inclusive workplace positively influences how consumers perceive your company.
Demonstrating a commitment to social responsibility can strengthen your brand image and expand your consumer market to include people with disabilities – an often forgotten market that represents 18% of the Australian population.
Hiring people with disabilities proves to consumers with disabilities, as well as their families and friends, that they are valued by your organisation. This leads to brand loyalty.
