In the lead up to International Day of People with Disability (IDPWD) on 3 December, the Victorian Public Sector Commission is encouraging all Victorian public sector employees to consider how they can make hybrid work more inclusive.
Hybrid work is when you work remotely and in the office over your work week, and its business as usual for many employees.
Removing barriers to effective hybrid work is one way to help employees with disability thrive in the Victorian public sector.
The Commission has an online resource promoting inclusive hybrid work practices in the Victorian public sector so that our workplaces are more inclusive.
The resource asks everyone to consider: what are you doing to support inclusive hybrid work?
In candid interviews, three Victorian public sector employees with disability to talk about their experiences of hybrid work. They share the barriers they’ve faced, what works for them, and the changes they want to see to make hybrid work more inclusive.
The resource includes tools and tips to help make the workplace experience more equitable.
Whether it’s collaborating with teammates, holding a staff event or meeting with external stakeholders, we want public servants to think about how to be more inclusive so that everyone can have a positive experience with the Victorian public sector.
The Victorian Public Sector Commission produced this resource with the support of Department of Transport and Planning to help the public sector deliver on its disability employment action plan, Getting to work.
