Workplace accommodation around disability enables workers to contribute their full range of skills, talents and abilities.

It is critical for employers to recognize the importance of workplace psychological health and safety. COVID-19 has highlighted the need to manage workplace stress and mental health.

Accessibility is an important feature of inclusion: it allows workplaces to build adaptability, resilience and recovery capacity during COVID.
