The Australian Public Service Commission launched the As One: Making it Happen, the APS Disability Employment Strategy 2016-19 on 31 May 2016.
At the launch of the As One: Making it Happen, the APS Disability Employment Strategy 2016-19, the Australian Public Service Commissioner, the Hon. John Lloyd noted "the Australian public sector is well placed to lead the way in disability employment. Our workforce is large and geographically dispersed, and provides services to all Australians. We can make a real difference as an employer and a role model."
The Strategy, developed in consultation with APS agencies and peak disability bodies sets out actions to increase the recruitment of people with disability. It sets out actions to ensure that employees with disability have opportunities for career progression and to ensure workplaces are accessible and inclusive.
The APSC has developed a range of resources to assist agencies implement the strategy including an Implementation Guide for HR managers, a manager's toolkit and resources for employees. These can all be found at the Disability page on the APSC website.
