Tuesdays at Ten: Diply
Diply: I knew by bringing her on board, it would be a morale boost for all of the other employees in the office. She’s brought a lot of joy and a cultural bump for all those that she has interacted with at work. She improves all our days - not to mention the hard work she does! #Tuesat10 @AbilityFirstLdn
Diply: I don’t think I can say I had any preconceptions after having opportunity to volunteer with @SOOLondonCan @SOOntario for 8 years. But previous to that, yes, I would have and can understand why people would have them. My advice to employers is to try it out, you have nothing to lose. #PWD are like any other employee. #Tuesat10 @AbilityFirstLdn
Diply: Yes – it’s something we all have to learn. There are words we use in our day to day interactions that are inappropriate & you may only realize they're inappropriate when you have individual with a disability around you. For example, with campaigns like @EndTheWord people are becoming more educated in this area and we will hopefully see many more improvements going forward. #Tuesat10 @AbilityFirstLdn
Diply: @HuttonHouseLdn is always available for questions, and they ensure a seamless transition for the employer. They provide great assistance in assimilating people with #disabilities into the workplace. With @SOOLondonCan, we've also utilized @HuttonHouseLdn for meetings & their facilities for dry land training. They are always willing to go above and beyond the standard need for assistance. #Tuesat10 @AbilityFirstLdn
Ability First: Connect with Joe and the @HuttonHouseLdn Employment Services team to find your next great employee: http://abilityfirst.ca/partners-employment/hutton-house. And that’s a wrap!
