With 1 in 5 Australians living with disability, we are committed to continue to remove unintended barriers throughout the employment cycle and to develop a dynamic and diverse workforce reflective of the communities that we serve.
Specifically, we are focusing on: employment, training and career development and through our in house Disability Confidence Training program our leaders empower our workforce to be disability-confident and build an accessible, equitable, inclusive and safe workplace for people with disability.
We are a founding and platinum member of the Australian Network on Disability, a not-for-profit organisation to support business and industry in Australia to improve accessibility and inclusion and to advance employment opportunities for people with disability. We also partner with specialised employment agencies as part of our Disability Employment Service Partner program who work with us to identify roles and support candidates with disability who may need additional support to obtain and sustain employment.
In 2017 Compass Group was proud to be acknowledged as ‘Employer of the Year’ in the National Disability Awards, presented by the Federal Department of Community Services.
We are committed to creating sustainable job opportunities for people with disability and work to increase recognition of equity and human rights for all Australians.
