In December, we achieved recognition as Disability Confident Committed. On behalf of Ablewell, John and Vicky pledged the key commitments:
“As a Disability Confident Employer our commitment towards this initiative has abolished the myths surrounding employing disabled people. The potential hidden disability or the unseen disability is not always apparent, but at employment interview level these issues would be addressed, and the correct support, signposting and solutions implemented wherever it is reasonably practicable. We focus on ability and not disability.”
– John Berry, HR Manager.
Vicky and John are now working towards achievement of level 2 recognition as a Disability Confident Employer. Disability Confident Employers are recognised as going the extra mile to make sure disabled people get a fair chance.
