Employers and Workplaces

Designing and trialling best practice approaches with employers and people with lived experience.


Helping employers build their capability and capacity to recruit, retain and support people with a health condition or disability to engage in good work.

Current Projects

Building employer capability

This project will develop new ways to improve the capability of employers to support people with health conditions or disability to enter into, stay at or return to work. This project is driven by evidence delivered through the Partnership that showed employers who have experience working with someone with a disability are more likely to recruit and support someone in the future.

Key findings

  • 50% of employers are not confident in their businesses ability to support people with a physical or psychological disability or health condition
  • Employers with experience in hiring or supporting people with health conditions or disability are more likely to repeat the experience
  • People felt that the right jobs are available but employers need more support to make work accommodations beyond a reduction in hours and lighter duties.
