This year, Disability Employment Services client, Carol, celebrates 15 years of employment with supermarket, Coles.
Paralowie local, Carol lives with an intellectual disability, which has affected her ability to feel confident within her workplace. So, she teamed up with the atWork Australia team in Salisbury, South Australia, for assistance in maintaining her employment.
In 2006, with the support of her husband, Carol was able to find her own employment with Coles. She maintains aisles by keeping them tidy and fully stocked. She is a valued member of the team.
“Carol commenced with atWork Australia in 2017 and we have since had the privilege of supporting her with participating in wage assessments and liaising with her Department Managers. We also attend her worksite to provide on-the-job support to manage her employment.” Said, her InWork Support Coach, Tanya.
In partnership with Tanya, Carol has been able to identify new strategies and methods to her work to boost her efficiency and confidence in completing tasks.
Over the past five years, Carol has always been grateful for the support of the atWork Australia team, but especially Tanya. Carol states;
“I am very thankful for Coles and how they support me in work. I am even more thankful to Tanya for always being there for me and helping me with everything.”
Not only has Tanya’s support assisted her work life, but it has had a ripple effect within her motivations to experience life too!
The atWork Australia team in Salisbury look forward to continuing to support Carol in employment in the future.
