Event description

Description

You are warmly invited to join us and a number of local businesses to learn more about the financial, operational and social benefits of being a Disability Confident Employer.


Employers should be making the most of the talent that exists amongst disabled people in this country and this event, supported by the Minister for Disabled People, Health and Work Penny Mordaunt MP, is to encourage employers to understand the business benefits of employing disabled jobseekers and retaining staff. Margot James MP will be attending this event.

By working with local employers, partners and employees this event showcases how people with a disability can make a major contribution to local business success and challenge negative attitudes to disability employment. Disabled people make up almost 20% of the working age population, many being highly qualified individuals.

Employers can be reluctant to employ them, missing out on a valuable pool of potential and skills. At our Disability Confident event, we would like to show you how much they have to offer your business and what support is available for your business.There are many myths about disabled people taking more days off sick, costing money to have workplace adjustments and worries around inclusivity. Join us to hear why they are wrong and listen and talk to employers who can explain the support that is available, the steps they have taken to help disabled people enter and progress at work and the benefits their businesses have gained as a result.
