We are on a mission to change the conversation about diversity; to help employers weave disability into their diversity and inclusion efforts; a vision to make it easier and more rewarding to do business with and employ disabled people. By providing pragmatic support, sharing expertise, giving advice, and providing training, we help organisations become fully accessible to disabled employees.
Ultimately, our aim is to transform the life chances – and experience – of people with disabilities as employees, through providing a framework that allows organisations to become disability-smart.
Recruiting, hiring, retaining and advancing workers with disabilities is good for South Africa and good for business. Progressive employers everywhere are learning that businesses inclusive of people with disabilities, benefit from a wider pool of talent, skills and creative business solutions.
We are here to support employers in their efforts to recruit, hire, retain and advance qualified individuals with disabilities.
We are that central resource that helps employers tap the benefits of disability diversity. We educate private-sector organizations on ways to build inclusive workplace cultures, and we empower them to become leaders in the employment and advancement of people with disabilities.
JDM assists employers through a unique range of advice, support and education, including outreach activities on topics such as : sourcing and hiring individuals with disabilities, from interviewing job candidates with disabilities to recruiting qualified job candidates; disability etiquette, and reasonable accommodations; tax incentives for hiring people with disabilities; as well as work readiness programs encouraging self-identification.
We are your gateway to training on the latest inclusion topics
