Genworth Canada’s Workplace Accessibility
Multi-Year Accessibility Plan
Genworth Canada has developed a Multi-Year Accessibility Plan outlining our strategy in meeting AODA requirements. This Multi-Year Accessibility Plan is reviewed and updated regularly..
In 2012 Genworth Canada launched an online Accessibility training course on Customer Service which our employees subsequently completed. This year we designed and developed a training course on Human Rights and Persons with Disabilities. All of our Canadian employees will be asked to complete this course, and a record of their completion will be tracked and recorded. As new employees join Genworth Canada they too will be required to complete this training within their first month of employment. In December 2015 we also launched a new Human Rights Training course based on the Integrated Accessibility Standards Regulations. New and existing employees will be asked to complete this training.
Throughout the interview process Genworth Canada will offer accommodation to applicants who are Persons with Disabilities or special needs.
