PAS Factsheet

Workplace Personal Assistance Services (WPAS) is a valuable tool that assists employees with significant disabilities to find and maintain employment. It is fast becoming the most effective method for employees with disabilities to achieve the needed level of production to become effective and efficient in the workplace. WPAS offers the opportunity for the workplace personal assistant to be exposed to different disabilities
and all types of work environments. This really makes WPAS a win-win situation for both the employee and the Workplace Personal Assistant (WPA). It also enables the employer to add diversity to their workforce since the employee with the disability and their WPA may come from different cultural and ethic backgrounds.
