When Todd Gogol, Director of Consumer Engagement at Royal Perth Hospital decided just over two years ago that he wanted to employ people living with disability he had no idea where to start.
“With over 3,500 staff at the hospital, we knew it was essential and part of our civic responsibility to acknowledge the diversity of the people we deal with day-to-day,” said Todd.
He was quickly referred to Rocky Bay, and within days, was presented with a wealth of opportunities and possibilities. Todd said, “like with any process you embark on, there is always an adjustment and discovery period, but Rocky Bay makes the transition and new process as easy as possible. It really is no different to employing any other employee, in fact, there are more support mechanisms in place to ensure success for all parties concerned.”
“We employed a Graphic Designer, Executive Assistant and Domestic Support Worker, who has now moved into a more challenging role as a Ward Clerk.”
Todd’s determined to continue employing further staff through Rocky Bay’s Employment Services.
