Join the Department for Work and Pensions (DWP) on Thursday 1 March at CONEL for their Disability Confident event. Disabled people can make a major contribution to the success of your business - learn more about recruiting and retaining a wealth of untapped talent your business could be missing out on.
People with disabilities are a dedicated, loyal and skilled workforce. Their dedication and capacity to overcome difficulties and their loyalty make them resourceful members of staff. The rates of retention staff, when compared to people with no disabilities, are significantly higher.
The DWP’s Access to Work Scheme provides help and support for both employers and employees regarding any additional requirements, which can support in a variety of helpful ways, that can include travel, support staff and equipment.
At the event you will be able to:
- Network with other local employers who will explain the steps they have taken, and the benefits their businesses have gained, as a result of employing experienced and highly qualified disabled people
- Hear testimonials from inspirational and motivating speakers
- Talk to qualified staff from the Department of Work and Pensions who can offer advice on Government funding grants and the support available through access-to-work
- Access the help and support you need to enable you to meet your recruitment needs from a much more comprehensive pool of talent.
If you would like to find out more about the access to work scheme and how it can make a significant contribution to the success of your business, then join us at our Disability Confident event.
Date: 1 March 2018, 10am to 12:30pm.
