Mental health and wellbeing is at the heart of our culture

We’re committed to raising awareness of mental health and wellbeing in the workplace, so we’ve pulled together a collection of resources that help support organisations to be inclusive and supportive of positive mental health.

Driving the Disability Confident agenda

We’re proud to be a Disability Confident Leader – one of the first companies to be accredited in the UK. Our Learning Director, Pat Ashworth, sits on the Government’s Disability Confident Professional Advisors Group (PAG), helping to ensure that it’s flagship ‘Disability Confident Scheme’ is robust and also helping to ensure we stay at the forefront of developments in disability inclusion strategies. The Government’s Disability Confident Scheme provides a great starting point for employers to develop environments that are more accessible and help improve recruitment, retention and development opportunities for disabled people within their organisation.

We interviewed Pat to find out more about what it means to be a Disability Confident organisation and why we need to continue to push the agenda to drive change for disabled talent in the workplace. Watch now to hear expert insight on the benefits of creating more accessible and inclusive working environments. Watch this engaging 10-minute interview where you’ll learn:

  • Strategies to raise awareness and foster positive attitudes towards disability
  • The potential barriers that organisations may encounter while supporting disabled employees and how to overcome them
  • How to increase understanding of the practical implications of changes in disability legislation.

The scheme is a great way of letting everyone know that you’re serious about becoming an inclusive employer.
