Crown Resorts Launches the CROWNability Action Plan - 04 December 2015
Crown Resorts proudly launched its first national disability action plan on Thursday, 3 December coinciding with the International Day of People with Disability.
 
Show Details

The CROWNability Action Plan was launched with the assistance of Paralympian and Crown disability employment ambassador Kurt Fearnley and leading organisations in the disability employment sector at a cocktail event at The Enclave at Crown Metropol Perth.

Crown Resorts CEO Rowen Craigie said Crown aspires to become a leader in transforming attitudes towards disability in workplaces and the broader community.

“Working with our employees and our partners in the disability employment sector has allowed Crown to build an inclusive workplace, helping more than 90 people build a meaningful career that is matched to their abilities at our resorts,” said Mr Craigie.

“The CROWNability Action Plan will help our organisation realise our goal by setting clear and measureable objectives.”

The CROWNability program was launched in December 2014 with 45 people employed across Crown Melbourne and Crown Perth. This number has since grown with 93 people currently employed across both properties.

CEO of the Australian Network for Disability Suzanne Colbert said the CROWNability Action Plan highlights Crown’s commitment to access and inclusion, while building a foundation to engage with the community and attract, recruit and retain skilled and talented people with disability within the resorts.
