What is Disability Confident, and why are we proud to have it?
As the HM Government page says: 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, and reaping the benefits of inclusive recruitment practices.
The scheme helps employers recruit and retain great people, and:
- 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.
FareShare Cymru is at level 1 Disability Confident Committed, from this level we can build our skills and experience in bringing on volunteers and staff, helping them and us achieve our best together. We have always striven to be as disability inclusive as we can be, by being part of this scheme we can demonstrate and celebrate our commitment, share our experience and help others along the path. Got to be good!
