Reed in Partnership has been re-certified as a Disability Confident Leader, the highest level of recognition on the Government’s Disability Confident Scheme. The scheme supports employers to be disability inclusive and enable people to access and succeed in the workplace.
To be recognised as Disability Confident Leader organisations complete a self-assessment which is validated by an authorised third party. Reed in Partnership’s evidence of good practice was validated by Business Disability Forum, a membership organisation that supports businesses to become fully accessible to customers and employees.
Part of our involvement as a Disability Confident Leader is to share best practice with other organisations. Over half of workplaces are missing out on disabled talent. Disability Confident organisations play a leading role in changing attitudes for the better and benefit from the diverse skills, experiences and voices disabled employees bring.
Since first becoming a Disability Confident Leader three years ago, Reed in Partnership has introduced a series of additional initiatives to highlight disability inclusion.
We ran a week-long campaign with the Yorkshire Evening Post which was designed to encourage businesses to employ people with disabilities and understand how they can make their workplace accessible.
