Why We Are Involved

At AMIE Family Care, our involvement in the inclusive employment movement is more than just a strategy – it’s a core value that defines who we are as a company. Here’s why:

Deep-Rooted Belief in Equality: We believe that every individual, regardless of age, gender, race, physical ability, or mental health condition, has unique strengths and potential. By promoting an inclusive work environment, we tap into a diverse range of perspectives, fostering innovation and creativity.

Reflecting Our Community: Our clients come from diverse backgrounds, and our team should reflect that.

Inclusive employment ensures that our services resonate with the real needs and aspirations of the communities we serve.

Strengthening Company Culture: Inclusivity isn’t just about hiring practices; it’s about fostering an environment where everyone feels valued and heard.

We’ve found that this culture of acceptance and mutual respect drives employee satisfaction, leading to better retention and higher service standards.

Personal Journey & Inspiration: The inception of AMIE Family Care stemmed from witnessing firsthand the challenges faced by seniors, individuals with disabilities, expectant mothers, and those battling mental health issues.

Our dedication to inclusivity was a natural extension of our desire to uplift and support every family member, irrespective of their unique needs.

Economic & Social Benefits: Beyond the moral imperatives, inclusive employment has a strong business case. Diverse teams have been proven to be more innovative and adaptable in a dynamic market environment.

Moreover, by embracing inclusivity, we also contribute to the broader societal goal of reducing unemployment rates and ensuring equal opportunities for all.

In conclusion, the inclusive employment movement isn’t just a ‘trend’ for us – it’s deeply intertwined with our mission to provide compassionate and tailored care. We started in this area because we realized that the best way to serve diverse families was to first understand and embrace that diversity within our organization.

Accessibility Initiatives

At AMIE Family Care, while we are at the initial stages of our journey, our vision is firmly set on fostering a culture of inclusion both externally and internally. As we grow, here are some of the accessibility initiatives and programs we plan to institute:

  • Accessibility Training: We will introduce mandatory training sessions on accessibility best practices for all employees, ensuring they’re prepared to accommodate and collaborate with colleagues of all abilities.
  • Workspace Adaptations: We are committed to adapting our workspaces to be inclusive. Our plans include installing ramps, wider doors, tactile indicators, and adjustable workstations to cater to every staff member’s needs.
  • Flexible Working Arrangements: Recognizing that each individual has unique requirements, we aim to offer flexible working hours, options for remote work, and extended leave policies tailored to diverse needs.
  • Assistive Technologies: Investment in assistive technology, such as screen readers and voice-activated software, is on our roadmap to ensure that all our digital tools and platforms remain accessible.
  • Feedback Mechanism: We will establish an open-door policy complemented by an anonymous feedback system. This will help us remain informed about areas of improvement and ensure that our accessibility efforts are constantly evolving based on genuine feedback.
  • Inclusive Recruitment: As we expand our team, we will ensure that our hiring practices and processes, from job descriptions to interviewing protocols, are accessibility-oriented.
  • Awareness Campaigns: Plans are in place to host awareness sessions and bring in experts from the differently-abled community to enlighten our team and instil the essence of accessibility.

While we’re in the early stages of our journey, our commitment is unwavering.

We are determined to pave the way for inclusive employment from the outset and are eager to lead by example in accessibility.
