Aussie Gardening and Cleaning – a Champion Employer for People with Disabilities
Aussie Gardening & Cleaning (AGC) is a family-owned business that became a registered National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) provider servicing Western Sydney in 2017.
Olympus Solutions, the employment service of Ability Options, partnered with AGC to assist with their recruitment efforts. Working with our employer specialist team, it was identified that the best fit for the roles at AGC were mums who were wishing to re-enter the workforce and needed to work school hours, and secondly, people looking for a second chance to enter the workforce but unable to work full-time.
AGC has now employed 15 participants from Olympus Solutions. Owners, Jess and Scott, and their management team (as seen in the photograph) have been able to support their employees in learning new skills to perform at their best in their roles.
The Olympus Solutions team continues to support the recently placed participants through regular contact, vocational counseling, organising necessary certifications, fuel vouchers, and work clothes.
Kudos to Aussie Gardening and Cleaning for their inclusive approach to recruitment by actively encouraging and supporting the employment of people with disabilities as well as being a champion employer in assisting job seekers in finding meaningful employment.
