Great news! We have been successful in our application to become a Disability Confident Employer through the Department for Work and Pensions.
The Disability Confident campaign works with employers to remove barriers, increase understanding and ensure that disabled people have the opportunities to fulfil their potential. This means as a business we have committed and are currently attracting, recruiting, retaining and developing disabled people into and within Coffee#1.
To become a Disability Confident Committed employer and start our Disability Confident journey, we had to consider the 6 commitments below:
Disability Confident is creating a movement of change, encouraging employers to think differently about disability and take action to improve how they recruit, retain and develop disabled people.
We hope by being Disability Confident we can take the unique opportunity to lead the way in our communities, and discover some amazing people.
Resourcing Manager, Lucinda Mann commented:
We are so pleased to be participating in the Disability Confident scheme and really hope that Coffee#1 can contribute to helping disabled people fulfil their potential.
