Hiring disabled people or people with health conditions
We can provide advice and support when you employ a disabled person or a person with a health condition.
Employing disabled people or people with health conditions can help you, your business and your community. Many businesses find having a diverse workforce makes good business sense and improves staff culture and profitability. Disabled people and people with health conditions:
- have many talents and skills to offer employers

An employer's experience
"Having a diverse team means we get an array of experience and perspectives, and it enriches our culture.
Everyone on our team brings something fantastic to our customer experience and there's so much support out there for any team member with challenges. We've had help with literacy and numeracy, and Workbridge have helped with equipment solutions (when they've been needed). It’s amazing how easy it is to overcome some of the challenges we have faced, with the Ministry’s and Workbridge support."
