The Learning Lab: Hiring Disabled & Neurodiverse People in the UK
In recent months, there has been a growing awareness of the importance of diversity and inclusion in the workplace.
This has led to a shift in focus towards hiring disabled and neurodiverse people who are just as skilled and talented and bring valuable perspectives and skills to the table.
However, while this shift is a step in the right direction, the systems and support required to accommodate and empower these individuals have yet to catch up.
In the UK, we've heard numerous horror stories of disabled and neurodiverse individuals facing discrimination, exclusion, and lack of support in the workplace after being hired into organisations through disabled community-focused programmes.
That's why we've updated our popular guide on hiring disabled and neurodiverse people with new sections that address some of these issues head-on.
This guide now includes:
a terminology guide,
explanations of the social vs medical model of disability
enhanced tips for process inclusion, and
vital information around safeguarding at-risk adults.
By implementing these recommendations, employers can create a more inclusive and supportive workplace culture that values the unique contributions of disabled and neurodiverse individuals whilst confidently mitigating associated risks.
Tell us a bit about you, and we'll ping over the guide to your inbox...
