An Opportunity to grow your business

When you offer a work experience or employ people with disability, you benefit from having people who have the skills and aptitude to do their job effectively and efficiently. Low absenteeism and staff turnover, low incidence of workplace injury and loyalty create productive and cost effective businesses.

The principles of employment or work experience are the same for people with disability as those without disability. The main focus should be on whether the individual has the skills and aptitude to do the job. At Ability Employment we work with you to find the right person for your business.
