Business Planning

Be an employer making a difference!

Are you looking to take advantage of the untapped workforce – people with a disability?

The Gippsland Employers Making a Difference (GEMAD) Charter encourages you to accept the eleven basic principles relating to the inclusion of people with a disability in the workforce.

In most cases, people with disability want to find a job. Like all employees, people with disability bring a range of skills and talents to the workplace.

With 4.2 million people or 18.5 per cent of Australians having a disability* embracing the Charter makes good business sense. (*Australian Bureau of Statistics, 2012)

Over 140 employers, including Bass Coast Shire Council, have signed the Charter. Will you be next?

To sign the Charter and start making a difference visit the GEMAD website.
