Paul Fox, Director of Workplace Solutions, Texthelp
Did you know that more than 15,000 businesses in the UK have signed up to the Disability Confident Scheme?
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.
As Disability Confident Employers, Texthelp are fully involved in and supportive of the Department for Work and Pensions’ Disability Confident scheme.
To help other organisations striving to improve inclusion, we have produced a succinct guide for Diversity and Inclusion professionals and HR Managers in conjunction with Pinsent Masons, The Telegraph, Microlink and HS2.
How the guide helps
Our employers guide is full of helpful information and recommendations to support you in adopting a disability confident strategy in your organisation.
It includes a five step plan for becoming an inclusive organisation, along with best practices from industry leaders to help you adopt inclusive policies from recruitment, induction, and staff development, to performance management and staff retention.
