About the Enabling Mark
The Enabling Mark is a national-level accreditation framework by SG Enable that benchmarks and recognises organisations for their best practices and outcomes in disability-inclusive employment.
The Enabling Mark seeks to
- Incentivise organisations to build a positive corporate image with disability-inclusive hiring.
- Inspire employers to adopt the best practices in building an inclusive workforce with leading organisations serving as role models.
- Inform and support organisations as they improve their inclusive employment practices.
What the Enabling Mark says about recipients
Organisations with the Enabling Mark are committed to building disability inclusiveness. Presence of the mark signals that the organisation is:
- Empowering The organisation is open to hiring people with different abilities. It treats people with respect, and builds strong teams that leverage on different strengths. It values each individual and enables them to fulfil their potential.
- Innovative The organisation adapts jobs and services to provide reasonable accommodations for persons with disabilities. This allows for the development of greater flexibility, new insights and an innovative mindset.
- Collaborative The organisation is open to different perspectives, and seeks to make people feel integrated, included and valued. Its focus is on achieving more through teamwork, not individual effort alone. It embraces mutually beneficial relationships with employees, stakeholders and partners.
