Toozly invited to exhibit at this event
The Public Service Commission ran a workshop with senior executives from across NSW government departments yesterday (3 December) to discuss and develop ideas and initiative to improve pathways and opportunities to recruit more people with disability within the public service. The aim of the government is to increase the number of jobs for people with disability by 10,000 by 2027.
The NSW government can show greater leadership in improving employment opportunities for people with disability given it is the State's largest employer. Currently, it is estimated to employ only 2.7% of its current workforce as people with disability and it aims to increase this to 5.6% over the next several years.
This is a whole of government initiative and includes ideas and initiative arising from the workshop and the small group work. The likely changes could include:
*using new and more accessible technologies and systems;
*changing processes for entry which may include new pathways, an alternative recruitment practice to the standard interview and selection processes;
*Partnering with organisations that work with people with disability to develop targeted attraction and recruitment action;
*creation of a single point contact for inclusion, accessibility and support.
Toozly was among a small group of providers that was invited to exhibit at the event and we had an opportunity to meet with attendees and discuss what Toozly could do for the NSW Government to increase the recruitment of people with disability. We also met with the NSW Public Service Commissioner Ms Emma Hogan and others at the event.

Dolly Parton's sad lament about having to work 9 to 5 strikes a chord with many of us. What a way to make a livin', it's all takin' and no givin'
Maybe removing the commute may ease some of the pressure.
Emails, video conferences, cloud-based software, and of course, Google. These days, it's hard to imagine life without the internet — particularly our working life.
I can attest to this — being able to work on the go using my iPhone is very convenient. It's one of my main work tools.
With its ever-expanding selection of
apps, programs and platforms, the internet has also brought us more choices in the way that we work — and where we work. Some people now perform their jobs without ever setting foot in an office or traditional workplace.
Working online can come with many benefits. But as with everything, it's essential to balance these benefits against your individual preferences and needs.

He Loves Me, He Loves Me Not
Remember that old kids game we played — counting petals on a flower to determine whether someone to whom we were attracted was also attracted to us. It used to be portrayed as a girl's game, but believe me — as a boy lacking confidence in his interactions with members of the opposite sex — I played it as well.
People with disabilities play the same game when they are applying for jobs — it's called Disclose, Not Disclose.
