ADHC's Disability Employee Network

In 2010 ADHC established the Disability Employee Network (DEN), a key agency advisory committee to provide advice on policies, procedures and strategies on the attraction, retention and career development of people with disability. The DEN aims to empower, encourage and promote opportunities for employees with disability. It also provides a forum for employees with disability to collectively act as a key stakeholder on issues relating to disability in the workplace.

The DEN has strong Executive support and is championed by Alastair Hunter, Deputy Director General who is particularly committed to ensuring that ADHC employees with disability have equitable access to career development and workplace training opportunities.

Our intranet hosts a number of resources aimed at attracting, retaining and developing the careers of people with disability at ADHC. As well as being a guide for managers and team leaders, the resources are also a valuable tool for employees with disability. It contains information about employer responsibilities, communication and etiquette, work health and safety advice, tips for accessibility and links to useful resources on obtaining workplace modifications.

With over 600 employees who have identified as having a disability, ADHC welcomes and encourages applications from people with disability.
