Disability Confident

Iansyst are Disability Confident Leaders

Create a disability confident organisation

At iansyst, we encourage organisations throughout the UK to sign up to the government’s Disability Confident Scheme. This initiative helps workplaces create a disability inclusive culture and encourages business to recruit and retain disabled people.

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.

How to create a disability inclusive workplace 

We have a host of videos that offer a snapshot of some of the most important points in creating a disability inclusive work culture. Here is founder of Evenbreak, Jane Hatton, on the benefits of employing disabled people – it’s a must watch!

You can receive more content from Jane Hatton and our other guest speakers for free!  Sign-up to access some of the most important takeaways of our event, which can help improve your existing practices and build a disability inclusive framework in your organisation.

In September, we hosted a workplace event “Enabling Inclusive and Accessible Workplace Strategies” where we invited  a range of local businesses to talk about best practice regarding disability. We had a host of fantastic speakers who talked about inclusive recruitment, accessible workplaces, reasonable workplace adjustments, one-to-one coaching and overcoming barriers in the workplace.
