Proud to be – Disability Confident Committed
Recruit Cumbria Ltd is proud to have signed up to the Disability Confident campaign. We were told about it during a recent visit to Job Centre Plus in Whitehaven where we were taking part in Hospitality Works 2019. Today we received our certificate and badge.
The Disability Confident scheme supports employers to make the most of the talents disabled people can bring to the workplace.
More and more businesses are signing up to Disability Confident every week. The scheme helps them think differently about disability, and improve how they attract, recruit and retain disabled workers.
How to become Disability Confident
Begin by signing up as Disability Confident Committed (Level 1) at: https://disabilityconfident.dwp.gov.uk/ – it’s easy! Alternatively ask your local Job Centre Plus for an application form.
Why you should sign 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.
The scheme helps employers:
- 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.
