Bringing Disability Awareness to the Workplace

 “There is no greater disability in society, than the inability to see the person as more.” – Robert M. Hensel

Progression’s new film provides a valuable and cost-effective way to bring disability awareness to your organisation.

Disability in the workplace, as well as in society itself, is a topic surrounded by stigma, apprehension and countless questions. Progression believes that, through the sharing of information around disability, these stigmas and fears can be replaced with acceptance and inclusiveness. Creating an informed, accepting and inclusive workplace and society, where disability is seen as part of normal human experience, is a vision shared by Progression and many corporates.

Many organisations are striving towards diversifying their workforce and including people with disabilities among their staff. However, creating an environment where disability is celebrated and accepted, rather than feared and stigmatized, can be a daunting task for many employers. Where do you start?

Creating awareness around disability is the first step in ensuring your work environment is an inclusive and accepting one, where people with disabilities feel comfortable in disclosing their disability and will be equipped with the knowledge and tools needed to be successful and productive. Progression’s new knowledge sharing video has been specifically designed to bring awareness and valuable information around disability to your workplace. Our video explores some of the main concepts surrounding disability management in the workplace, including:

  • Legislation
  • Definition
  • Stereotypes
  • Reasonable Accommodation
  • Disclosure
  • Confidentially and much more

Use the video as a part of your staff induction, disability awareness strategy, disability days and much more.

Through this video, we hope to debunk some of the myths and misconceptions that exist around employing people with disabilities and help organisations to realise the multitude of possibilities for integration.
