Diversity and inclusion ale in a day’s work for Brouhaha Brewery


I guess my fear for me, not having ever employed someone with a disability, was I felt like it might be difficult and overwhelming to not just find the right person that had the right skill set that could fit into our group, but then also the pay rates and sort of trying to keep them on enough hours and casually and all of these sorts of things. So when we found someone like EPIC that came in with a caseload of so many different potential employees and they came in and they asked what we were trying to fill and then found the right one that had the right roster, it just made it all so easy. Having Mich has been a huge, huge sort of step up in the business. We are a brewery and we do have a really diverse range of beers and what that means is that attention to detail has to be paramount. So when we found Mitch and saw the way he works and he’s fastidious by nature. And it’s so reassuring to know that that role is being taken care of 100% of the time in exactly the same fashion. His disability is is actively a strength in our business. That attention to detail is so hard to find and he’s been a huge asset to our business as a result. Where we’ve sort of seen Mitch progress is his buy in to the business, and he’s also come out of his shell. He’s now proud of the business. The team here is great and all. They’re very friendly and easy to talk to if I end up having trouble or having a problem someone will be happy enough to help. I help with the canning process at Brouhaha. I check every can to see if there’s any defects. If there are they’re rejected. I’ve become more confident and used to socialising with other people. EPIC has, excuse the pun, been quite epic. It’s so much easier than I ever expected and and there’s serious positives to it. It has just been so rewarding and it’s been so easy.
