Examples of good practise
Many employers around the world have proven records of persons with disabilities who are working in supported employment. Supported employment made contributions to 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 show their good performance in helping people with disabilities in gaining and maintaining jobs.
