Event description

Description

The training is bought to you by the OCPSE Employment Programs Team and JobAccess and is targeted at SA Pubiic Sector Hiring Managers and HR personel and aims to provide participants with:

  • an introduction to the OCPSE Disability Employment Strategy to promote Disability employment across the public sector
  • an awareness of Disability in the community and workplace, presented by JobAccess.

You will hear interesting facts, see myths dispelled and learn a range of tips to support good practice in your workplace.

You will be encouraged to think about barriers to your existing recruitment practices. You will also receive advice on how to make small but important changes in the workplace that may support developing confidence and competence when it comes to disability and employment.

The session will be interactive with practical information, activities and a brief video. Key points covered in the session include:

  • Disability: a brief overview
  • Mental health and work
  • Barriers, stereotypes and myths
  • What does the law say?
  • Understanding and making reasonable adjustments
  • Communication tips
  • Partnerships to support your commitment
  • Tools and resources
  • Discrimination
  • Managing employees with disability
  • Learning outcomes

The session aims to demonstrate that disability is part of human diversity and that you are likely to be touched by disability in the workplace or at a personal level at some stage of your life. Our goal is for you to start or further your understanding of disability – perhaps moving from being a little wary or unsure about what it all means, to feeling more confident.

By the end of the session you will have greater insight into disability and employment and a better understanding of how to create a more inclusive, supportive workplace for all your staff – including people with disability.
