Be Inclusive

Big changes happen when we have safe and supportive workplaces.

Being inclusive is the best foundation for employing people with barriers to employment from GROW communities.

This means a workplace where staff feel they belong, and are supported with good work practices such as clear inductions, flexible hours, buddies or mentors.

If you can offer sustaining and sustainable jobs, this can be life-changing for individuals and families. And while not every business has appropriate jobs, you may be able to offer work experience or internships for students or job seekers who need a start. Job carving is another option, creating bespoke roles for people with diverse needs.
