THE BENEFITS OF WORK

Work can bring many benefits.  It helps to improve the welfare of individuals, families and communities. Put simply, people are generally better off when they are working. They can pay their bills, enjoy the freedom of decisions that money can bring, support their loved ones and enjoy the sense of contribution to their community. We know that it is important to have the best transition you can from school to employment, and we are here to make that happen.

Meaningful, or good work is essential to the wellbeing of nearly everyone. Work that satisfies you and fulfils a purpose also helps you to:

  • Learn new skills and gain experience
  • Connect with new people and your community

We helped Griffith, a school leaver from Queensland to get a dream first job in hospitality.

Griffith had an idea of what he wanted to do when he left school but wasn’t sure if his idea would suit his needs as he is on the Autism spectrum. Then Griffith approached atWork Australia, and through his dedicated Disability Employment Services Job Coach, Griffith was able to land his first job. Griffith had a grin from ear-to-ear when he discovered he had the job and would be getting to develop his skills as a Barista, earn money and experience the benefits that work brings. His Job Coach Sonya noticed a change in Griffith “I see a stronger and more confident Griffith learning new skills and he is already reheating food and serving residents, without supervision,” she said.
