Is DES stuck in the Eighties?

Why can I still see disability employment organisations promoting the “benefits of employing the disabled” to business and the commodification of the individual? If I’m a business and I’m talking to a DES, then I’m talking to you about your service. It’s about the DES, its service offering and the values , beliefs and ethics of your staff and business.

Successful placement is about you and your attitude to disability and what you offer to business. Time to make a great leap forward, well at least into this decade of the new century! Hurry before its to late.
