Access for all policy

As a professional services organisation our approach to employment is a little different. Be it vocational or academic, our human resourcing tends to be weighed and measured against competency and compatibility in preference to relying on more traditional methodologies.

Our recruitment style places more emphasis on talent, commitment, dedication, and performance over a piece of paper that may or may not accurately reflect the competencies of its holder. We also know that diversity and inclusion are the ingredients that bring magic to our team.

Flexible hours have always been the modus operandi for We Push Buttons Staff, well before the word pandemic became part of the lexicon. We know from experience that our blueprint for encouraging a healthy work-and-play balance for staff facilitates greater production. The quality of the work, the creative output, the dedication and flexibility required to complete a deadline ….all these aspects enhance the calibre of the product for our clients.

Having a flexible workforce also increases our capacity to employ a wider range of staff than we would normally be able to attract, including a balance of gender, age, and ability.

As a digital agency with a core focus on working with not-for-profit and for-purpose organisations across Australia, we know accessibility and ensure the websites and apps we build are fully compliant with the latest Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) as well as W3C regulations.

Very few non-government websites are designed using these standards, as compliance adds an additional 15% to the cost of development however, as a progressive organisation, we see it as leading by example to educate our clients of the merits of compliance.

Accessibility framework

When budget allows we develop and build digital content that meets the WCAG 2.0 Accessibility standards (Level AA), so users who have one or more impairments from the list below will be able to view and access the content on the website.

  • visual: degrees of impairment in one or both eyes, colour blindness, sensitivity to bright colours
  • speech: difficulty producing speech for the purposes of speech recognition services or people
  • auditory: hard of hearing, deafness
  • cognitive and neurological: learning disabilities, distractibility, difficulties remembering, focusing on large amounts of information
  • physical: difficulties using a mouse or keyboard, limited fine motor control, slower response time
