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.
