Making Your Workplace Disability Confident
Designed to encourage and support employers who recruit and retain disabled people, and people with health conditions, for their skills and talent, the government’s Disability Confident scheme, revamped and launched in November 2016, has, within its first year, assisted 5,000 companies to create a more inclusive workforce.
Approximately a fifth of the working age population is disabled. This represents a sizeable proportion of the potential workforce, so becoming Disability Confident and providing employment for people with disabilities has never been more important.
During this session, Paul Roy of Law Hound will provide viewers with an overview of what Disability Confident is and the goals it is trying to achieve which include challenging attitudes towards disability, increasing understanding of disability and ensuring that disabled people can fulfil their potential and realise their aspirations
Aimed at those who manage employees as part of their role, this session will provide advice on the three levels of the Disability Confident scheme and what an employer must do to achieve each level.
Guidance will also be offered on how to apply to become part of Disability Confident and the benefits available to employers who do so.
