Access to disabled candidates on a National basis.
Gratech has established a holistic disability strategy to ensure its clients are provided with the necessary resources to allow full disability integration into the workplace.

Due to stereotyping and ignorance, employees with disabilities are typically placed in low-profile, low-growth and entry positions in the workplace. People with disabilities however, are people with abilities, equally capable of and eligible for a wide range of positions and occupations just as people without disabilities.

Inclusive recruitment practices can assist in bringing people with disabilities into the workplace. With this in mind, we define both client and consultant responsibilities at each stage of the process.

Our goal is to streamline and add value to every step of the recruitment process, from sourcing competent people with disabilities in line with their aspirations and abilities and assisting our clients to achieve a culture of human rights and connectedness.

We have partnered with a number of NGOs catering for people with disabilities including the QuadPara Association of South Africa and The National Council for Persons with Physical Disabilities in SA.

These working partnerships ensure that Gratech Recruitment clients are closely networked & have direct access to Disabled personnel on a national basis.

Our industry partner in the up-skilling and recognition of individuals via bursaries, learnerships and RPL programs.

We are proud Members of the Association of Personnel Service Organisations (APSO), the Recruitment Industry Representative Body. We proudly uphold APSO's code of ethics and professional standards of business. All our consultants have completed the APSO Examination and attend training and professional development on a continuous basis
