Customised Employment

“Discovery is not……spending time on a laptop computer, administering assessments, taking notes, using checklists, ranking competencies or comparing. Discovery does not include predicting or guessing what a person can do or identifying jobs that are available in the labor market.”

Awesome People Talk About CDERP

“Phenomenal group of researchers and practitioners advancing inclusive workplace practices in Australia!!!”

September, 2018.

“We’re in a process of changing our organisation completely, the practices within our organisation, so it has to come from the top. It has to be appropriately resourced and then I think having trusted partners for all stages. CDERP is a trusted partner that we can have someone as our guide to bring us through the process.”

Nick MacHale
Brite Services

“I just think that the impact of this first part of Discovery on you is quite significant and I would be right in saying that the outcomes that you would assume for clients would be so different to what you might have considered in the past.”
