Having a disability can be mentally and physically draining, especially when you don’t have the tools, techniques and strategies to work at your full capacity. These three things alone can help with time management, stress prevention, increase motivation, productivity, self-esteem and confidence.
Our workplace coaches understand the emotional drain that having a disability can bring. We work with you to make sure you have emotional support, so you don’t feel alone, you feel supported, gives you a place to de-stress and re-focus and allows you to air concerns in a supported environment. Without this support many disabled people in the workplace feel isolated.
It is often the case in disability at work related issues that there is a lack of communication between employers, employees and colleagues, as disability can be a sensitive issue. We will bridge this gap by helping everyone to feel more comfortable and confident when discussing disability.
We have extensive knowledge of other organisations that can also support employers and employees in the workplace. For example if an organisation needs a workplace assessment, if an individual needs personal counselling or available funding (Access to Work).
It is not expected that employers and organisations are experts in disability however reaching out for the right support will help all those involved feel more supported. Our disability at work service is not limited to individuals. We can also support the organisation as a whole including colleagues and management.
All of the above are a great way to help your employee manage their disability at work. Centre for Resolution believes this is the way to enable rather than disable but ultimately the key to a better and more inclusive workplace.
