Recruiting People with a Disability: An Employer Perspective

Australian Human Resources Institute’s CEO, Serge Sardo, writes of the ongoing challenge for Australian employers to hire people with disability.

AHRI’s research indicates that, by and large, being qualified and job-ready is not good enough for a person with a disability to actually cut through prejudice to get a job.

While Serge applauds the work being done by the Government in its attempts to boost the employment of people with disabilities in Australia, he believes we aren’t doing anywhere near enough, especially in the area of informing and engaging employers.
