APM’s Valuable 500 Commitment:

APM was established 25 years ago to help people realise better and fuller lives. As Australia’s biggest provider of Disability Employment Services we know that for far too long People with Disability (PwD) have been excluded from the workplace and have suffered social and community isolation as a result.

Every day we work with hundreds of small and medium businesses across Australia and show them what great employees PwD are. Once these businesses see the value of building a diverse workforce they often come back to us when they have future vacancies.

It’s no secret that a job changes a life, but it doesn’t end there – a job for a Person with Disability helps them become a full and active member of society. The biggest barriers to employing them are outdated perceptions and it’s incumbent on all of us to break these down.

To help combat this APM has committed to:

  • Work with Australian SMEs to dismantle perceptions and barriers and demonstrate the value of building a diverse workforce with People with Disability.
  • Engage with the broader Australian community through traditional media, social media and community outreach to dismantle outdated perceptions.
  • Continue to be a strong advocate with Government to drive and deliver disability employment programs that make a difference.
  • As Australia’s first member of this important initiative, we commit to enlist a further three businesses to join The Valuable 500.

We ensure that our employees fully realize their potential in a welcoming and respectful environment. Therefore, we value initiatives for inclusion, contributing to the well-being of all those who work in our company.

Through learning solutions developed by Unibrad (Bradesco Corporate University), we prepare our leaders and their teams to eliminate attitudinal barriers when receiving and welcoming employees.

We are “allies for respect” and we want each person, in their own way, to be able to add to our mission. This mission that, since 2010, has been in evidence with the Bradesco Disability Training Program.

In the initiative implemented in partnership with Bradesco Foundation, bank’s educational institution that promotes social inclusion through education, we qualify newly hired professionals with disabilities. For a year, the new employees are invited to experience an inclusive learning journey that begins in the classroom and reachs the activities they will perform at the Organization.

The qualification has guidance from tutors and managers and provides, since the beggining, access to didactic and pedagogical resources adapted to each one’s needs, with compatible remuneration with the market and a variety of benefits for those admitted by the Program.

We have an extensive portfolio of accessibility solutions designed to provide autonomy and independence to our employees. The resources are developed by a specific group that seeks to eliminate physical, architectural, communicational, methodological, instrumental, programmatic and attitudinal barriers in our relationships.

Thus, we assume the commitment of leverage this transformation, working to expand opportunities, promote respect and inclusion, disseminate the culture of coexistence with diversity and enable the inclusion of people with disabilities, valuing each competence, experience and difference.

IBM’s Valuable 500 Commitment:

In its 100+ year old journey, IBM has constantly been at the forefront of inclusion. Whether it is recruiting our first women and African-American employees in 1899, or people with disabilities in 1914. These were business imperatives before any civil rights acts or legislations. We established our “Equal pay for equal work” policy in 1935.

IBM thinks about diversity the way we think about innovation both are essential to the success of our business. When we innovate, technology becomes smarter for clients and creates new opportunities for growth. When we incorporate diversity into our business, we create better innovations and out-comes.” – Ginni Rometty, CEO, IBM

Equal Opportunity & Non-discrimination:

At the center of our inclusion strategy is our commitment to equal opportunity. Business activities at IBM, such as hiring, promotion, and compensation of employees, are conducted without regard to race, color, religion, gender, gender identity or expression, sexual orientation, national origin, genetics, disability, or age. For qualified people with disabilities, IBM makes workplace accommodations that comply with applicable laws, and which IBM determines are reasonable and needed for effective job performance. In respecting and valuing the diversity among our employees, and all those with whom we do business, managers are expected to ensure a working environment that is free of all forms of harassment.

At IBM India our prime D&I focus are advancement of women, mainstreaming inclusion of people with disabilities, inclusion of the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender+ community and work-life integration. We also focus on wholesome inclusion on all other dimensions which allows our employees to bring their whole authentic self to work.

Our commitment includes:

  1. We established the people with disability Council (Enablers) led by our D&l Team.  The council ensures accessible technology across our entire enterprise as we continue to advance disability inclusion as a source of inclusion and competitive advantage. IBM strives to create a workplace where everyone feels they belong.
  2. Reducing the stigma around the discussion of disabilities by showcasing the lived experiences of our people in relation to disability and resilience; and
  3. Develop and deploy training programs focused on disability and accessibility.

OMD Worldwide’s Valuable 500 Commitment:

It’s no secret that diverse talent is good for business and by putting a strong focus on inclusion we create broader opportunities for everyone in the workplace.  At OMD EMEA, we pride ourselves on delivering creative, innovative and empathic solutions for our clients.   We recognise we need to ensure our workforce is made up with people from a wide variety of backgrounds to spark collaboration, raise awareness, encourage open, honest discussions and promote new ways of thinking.   We also recognise our workforce has to reflect the multicultural, diverse communities in which we operate.

 

Our journey toward building a more open and inclusive culture meant we needed to focus on areas of under-representation with disability being one such area.   The Government’s Disability Confident Scheme was a great place to start as it supports people with disabilities to gain employment and provides employers with frameworks and guidance on how we can continue to improve our approaches to attract people with disabilities.

 

We recognised the importance of joining the Scheme to proactively raise awareness around the challenges people with disabilities face when seeking work and to continue our journey as a flexible and inclusive employer.

 

By gaining our Disability Confident Committed level 1 accreditation, we have committed to actioning the following:

  • Using social media, our company website and other portals to enable people to access our vacancies more easily and apply in a manner that fits their needs
  • Offering work experience and internships to provide everybody with opportunities within OMD EMEA
  • Continuing to deliver unconscious bias awareness training to help eliminate bias and to raise awareness
  • Empowering under-represented groups to speak openly about their accomplishments and help our people learn more about each other

“With honourable exceptions, the business community has been nothing like as vocal or active as it should have been in recognising the challenges faced by disabled colleagues.  There is so much more we can do to implement changes that enable disabled members of the community to deliver to their potential, and we see the Valuable 500 campaign as part of that.

PwC’s Valuable 500 Commitment:

At PwC we have made a public and internal commitment to improve the diversity of our workforce by building a culture of inclusion – a culture that empowers all of our people to be the best they can be and where everyone feels valued. Disability is a key area of focus for us in our inclusion strategy. 15% of the UK’s workforce are disabled and 80% of those acquiring disabilities do so between the ages of 18 and 64 – the working age – so this is an important issue for business, and at PwC we have clear actions to support disability inclusion.

We’ve made significant investment in a wide range of assistive technology including Dragon, Text Help, Zoom Text etc.  and we have a team dedicated to ensuring our technology is accessible and raising awareness of the specific tools available as well as the native tech in Google and iPhones. Our people can visit our Tech Lounges, which display technology and phone choices, and get advice on which tech tools would best suit their needs.  One of our most popular events is the IT Escape Room, an immersive experience where our people learn about disabilities and assistive technology.

Our DAWN network (Disability, Ability, Wellbeing network) has a high profile and is very active in supporting both our disability inclusion and mental health agenda. They provide support, advice and information to their members and regularly host events to raise awareness and understanding of different disabilities. Additionally, their members play an important role advising our premises team on the accessibility of our offices and facilities, and our Inclusion team consults the network to inform the support we provide to people with disabilities.

We have a number of external relationships to support our work on disability. We are active members of the Business Disability Forum and consult them to inform our disability inclusion strategy.  Earlier this year we hosted an Accessibility Tech Showcase event for them which brought together accessibility IT companies with other BDF partners and we are members of their Technology Task Force. Our partnership with Auticon (a social enterprise employing IT consultants on the autism spectrum)  has created work opportunities for individuals with Autism and has enhanced the firm’s understanding of the adjustments needed to support individuals with autism in the workplace.

Spark Minda Group’s Valuable 500 Commitment:

Census 2001 has revealed that over 21 million people in India have at least one disability. This is equivalent to 2.1% of the population. Among the total disabled people in the country, 12.6 million are male and 9.3 million are female.

Among the five types of disabilities on which data has been collected, disability in seeing at 48.5% emerges as the top category. Others in the sequence are in movement (27.9%), intellectual (10.3%), in speech (7.5%), and in hearing (5.8%). Across the country, the highest number of disabled people has been reported from the state of Uttar Pradesh (3.6 million).

Therefore, to ensure sustainability to the lives of Persons with Disability, Spark Minda Group has developed a project called “SAKSHAM”.

People with disabilities have been left behind and excluded form many of the main development processes, pushing people to the margins and poverty, towards unsustainable ways of livelihood. We cannot hope to truly achieve sustainable development without creating a future of real inclusiveness for everyone, everywhere. In order to create a change which can further help to aid sustainable development, we employ persons with disabilities after mapping the functions in our factories across India. Thus, on the basis of this mapping, persons with visual impairment, hearing impairment, physical impairment and speech impairment are employed.

  • Our vision 2020 was to give persons with disabilities 7000 permanent roles.
  • Employment to another 1000 persons with disabilities in the next 5 years. 

The project is providing sustainability to the lives of  persons with disabilities so aspiring youth can achieve, and find job opportunities.
