HOW TO APPLY
To apply for the Enabling Mark, an organisation must
In the application for the Enabling Mark, an organisation's practices and outcomes in disability inclusion will be assessed over 6 categories:
- Leadership, Culture and Climate
- Recruitment Practices
- Workplace Accessibility and Accommodations
- Employment Practices
- Community Engagement and Promotion
- Extent of Inclusive Hiring
The overall maturity level of an organisation across the 6 assessment categories would thus determine the Enabling Mark tier that the organisation will receive – Silver, Gold or Platinum, with Platinum being the highest tier.
- Eligible organisations are to submit their application via the Enabling Mark portal. The application form includes a self-assessment of an organisation’s practices and outcomes in disability inclusion over 6 categories (see above section).

- The Enabling Mark self-assessed (Gold/ Platinum) recipients will need to apply for assessment in order to receive the Enabling Mark.
- The assessment session will require organisations to prepare documentary evidences and includes documentary reviews and on-site visits. To find out more about the process of an assessment session, click here.
- The Enabling Mark (Gold/Platinum) recipients will receive a report on their disability practices and outcomes, with recommendations to support their disability inclusion journey.
- The Enabling Mark self-assessed (Silver) recipients do not need to go through assessment, however, organisations who received the Enabling Mark (Silver) may apply for consultancy services to gain a better understanding of the Enabling Mark criteria and how to progress in their disability-inclusive journey.
