Inclusive workplaces

in action.

Access the talent, training and tools you need to successfully employ people with disability.

%

70% of people with disability placed in their roles through disability employment services (DES) lose their job within 3 months. We know that these failed placements are confidence-destroying for employees, and come at a significant cost to employers.

 

Jigsaw Connect delivers bespoke recruitment programs to corporate and government employers that:

  • Build confidence and competence in hiring people with disability.
  • Match and prepare Jigsaw’s talent pool of job-ready candidates to available roles or business needs.
  • Implement training and ongoing support programs that deliver long term, sustainable outcomes.

Jigsaw Connect recruitment programs follow three key steps:

1. Consult and Source Talent

Jigsaw will first identify the roles then build a capability matrix to source and train talent for each role. 

2. Prepare Teams

Jigsaw will assess teams preparedness to work with disability, then deliver training to address specific needs. 

3. Place & Support

Jigsaw will work with the line manager to place the right candidate and provide ongoing support to ensure long term, sustainable outcomes.
