Examples of good practise
Around the word today, many employers offer examples of good practices in including persons with disabilities in the workplace through supported employment. Supported employment contributes to both the employer and the person with a disability. Good examples lead to good followers. Employers with proven records can apply for a quality mark from WASE and can share their experiences in supporting people with disabilities to obtain and maintain jobs.
