DWW Disabled Wanting Work

Disability statistics give you information about disabled people living in New Zealand.

​Speaking in plain English we can read the stats as much as we like the fact is not much has changed in the last 15 years.​

​Back in 2005, about 75% of the disabled were unemployed now 15 years later about 75% of the disabled are unemployed.

​Over the last 15 years, that statistic has stayed within 1-2% of what it is now.​

Enter COVID 19

​​It is 2020 when it comes to employment for the disabled I think many employers or potential employers feared the extra cost of providing accessible premises.

​​Your entry and your exit needed to be accessible the disabled person may need other equipment or doorways may require changing and certainly, an accessible toilet would need to be supplied

Now we have come to 2020 COVID 19 has arrived.

Because of the virus circulating around the world, people are now having to work from home and I think it is only going to become quite normal for people to work from home.

Because people are now working from home the potential employers looking for disabled employees has greatly increased because employers of potential disabled employees were no longer faced with the daunting task of providing accessibility within the workplace.

What with the accessibility barriers removed there is a good chance and a disabled employee would be able to provide an equal work output as any other employee.​

It is now clearly a good time to think about employing a disabled person disabled want to be working so many will be very motivated and be able to provide good output with little or no extra costs being passed onto the employer.
