The Disability Confident scheme supports employers to make the most of the talents disabled people can bring to your workplace.
13,000 organisations have already signed up.
Disability Confident organisations play a leading role in changing attitudes for the better. They’re changing behaviour and cultures in their own businesses, networks and communities, and reaping the benefits of inclusive recruitment practices.
The scheme helps employers recruit and retain great people, and:
· draw from the widest possible pool of talent
· secure high quality staff who are skilled, loyal and hard working
· improve employee morale and commitment by demonstrating that you treat all employees fairly
It also helps customers and other businesses identify those employers who are committed to equality in the workplace.
7.6 million working age people in the UK have a disability. “At a time when the hospitality sector could be facing a skills and labour shortage, we need to make sure we can offer great opportunities for all talented people. Being Disability Confident is just good business sense.” Kate Nicholls, Chief Executive, UKHospitality
