Susy challenges stigma of disability in the workplace

Susy, who has Rheumatoid Arthritis, found that having an invisible illness made it difficult for her to find an employer that would be understanding of her needs. However, after connecting with WISE Employment Prahran, Susy secured a role at Karista, a start-up disability and aged care comparison website. The match has been so successful that Susy and employer, Danielle, has formed not only a great working relationship but also a friendship. “After meeting with WISE, I knew it wasn’t about ‘just placing someone’; they took the time to understand my business and fulfil my needs,” says Danielle. I was after an intelligent, motivated individual with the right attitude, and they found that person in Susy. I couldn’t be happier with the work Susy is doing.”
