Australia, December 3, 2020
Infosys (NYSE: INFY), a global leader in next-generation digital services and consulting, today announced its focus on improving digital accessible learning experiences for people with disability. This announcement builds on Infosys’ ongoing commitment to building platforms and infrastructure for a diverse and inclusive workplace.
As part of this journey, Infosys will work towards building a more digitally accessible learning experience for people with disability through Infosys’ next-gen digital learning platform — Infosys Wingspan. Thirumala Arohi, Vice President and Head of Education, Training and Assessment, Infosys said, “As we embark on this digital accessibility journey, working with our partners such as the Australian Network on Disability, will allow us to continuously evolve our digital learning experiences to be more inclusive for people with disability.”
The Australian Network on Disability (AND) will act as a trusted advisor for Infosys on accessibility. AND is a national not-for-profit organisation that recognises and supports businesses to advance the inclusion of people with disability across all areas of business.
Andrew Groth, Senior Vice President and Region Head for Australia and New Zealand said, “On International Day of People with Disability we are advancing our partnership with the AND. The Australian Network on Disability (AND) is an important advisor to help us build more digitally accessible learning experiences for people with disability.”
Amy Whalley, Deputy CEO, The Australian Network on Disability said, “It’s such a pleasure working with Infosys on their journey towards being more accessible and inclusive. The Australian Network on Disability is proud to partner with Infosys on this journey of creating more digitally accessible learning experiences for people with disability, building on their recognition as a Disability Confident Recruiter earlier this year.”
Earlier this year, Infosys joined a group of 16 organisations in Australia that are recognised as Disability Confident Recruiters (DCR) by the Australian Network on Disability. Our DCR status, acknowledges ongoing work by the Infosys’ regional diversity and inclusion council. This also aligns with the Infosys’ global diversity charter that employment decisions are made based on merit and business needs.
For several years now, Infosys Australia has had a specialist recruitment intake of neurodiverse jobseekers and people on the autism spectrum. The recruitment intake and dedicated training for both successful candidates and managers is underpinned by the Infosys Global Diversity Policy, and has successfully created pathways to digital careers for neurodiverse talent.
Andrew Groth, Senior Vice President and Region Head for Australia and New Zealand further added, “Infosys is already experiencing the benefit of employing people with disabilities. We have found that employees with disabilities are key contributors and should be given the opportunity to do so.”
