How we help businesses become disability confident
We are committed to helping businesses improve their support for staff. We often find that HR and senior management want to do the right thing but they may not know where to start or understand the types of adaptions that are needed.
With our team of workplace coaches and trainers, we can help all businesses throughout the UK implement a workplace adjustment framework, which includes workplace assessments, assistive technology (software, hardware and ergonomics) along with training, one-to-one strategy coaching, workplace consultancy and Disability Awareness workshops for your staff.
Why sign up to disability confident?
When businesses widen their recruitment search and have the confidence to support disability, they will attract more suitable and skilled candidates.
In the UK, there are seven million working age people with a disability or health condition but only half of them are in work. When employers tap into this larger talent pool, they will not only find more loyal and skilled candidates but also help increase the UK economy at large.
By being Disability Confident, organisations also gain a positive image which is attractive to potential customers. When businesses are inclusive, they are representing a larger portion of the UK and can tap into the “Purple Pound”, which is the £249 billion spending power of disabled customers.
