What does it mean to be a Disability Confident Employer?

Being a Disability Confident Employer means making a commitment to creating an inclusive and accessible workplace for people with disabilities. Here are some steps you can take to become a Disability Confident Employer:

Learn about disability: Educate yourself and your team about different types of disabilities, how they can affect individuals, and ways to make your workplace more accessible.

Review your policies and practices: Review your policies and procedures to ensure they are inclusive of people with disabilities. This may include recruitment, selection, and performance management processes, as well as any reasonable accommodations that may be needed.

Create a supportive workplace: Create a workplace culture that is welcoming, supportive, and inclusive of people with disabilities. Encourage open communication, provide opportunities for training and development, and ensure that all employees are treated fairly and with respect.

Make your workplace accessible: Make physical changes to your workplace to ensure it is accessible for people with disabilities. This may include installing ramps, lifts, or accessible toilets, and ensuring that your website and other communications are accessible.

Promote Disability Confidence: Show your commitment to being a Disability Confident Employer by promoting your initiatives and successes. This may include highlighting positive stories about employees with disabilities or sharing your successes on social media or in other marketing materials.

Get certified: Consider joining the UK government’s Disability Confident scheme, which provides a framework and resources for employers to become more inclusive of people with disabilities. The scheme has three levels of certification, each with increasing levels of commitment and benefits.

By taking these steps, you can become a Disability Confident Employer and create a more inclusive workplace for people with disabilities. This will not only benefit your employees but also your business, as you tap into a wider pool of talent and create a more diverse and innovative workforce.
