Assessments Australia, A MAX Solutions company, undertook a data collection project for the NDIA in which we administered surveys in person and by phone with participants, their families and carers to capture their NDIS experience. As a disability employment provider we sought to employ people with disability in call centre and field officer roles to offer them valuable work experience and because we are committed to reflecting our customers in our workforce. 43% of our workforce were employed from DES providers and we would like to share our experience as an employer, contractor to a government agency and DES provider.
