Don't just take our word for it

“There are strong commercial reasons for employing disabled people. Firstly, it is the right thing to do and, secondly, commitment to the job is absolutely massive.”

Retail People Director, Asda

If your organisation doesn’t actively employ people with disabilities you could be missing out! We work with a pool of talented, motivated individuals who have a lot to contribute and with Remploy as your partner, making ‘reasonable adjustments’ becomes affordable and straightforward.

Here are some of the reasons why employing disabled people makes sound business sense:

  • Helps fulfil the diversity and inclusion policies within your CSR and SROI agendas
  • Enhances your organisation’s reputation
  • Attracts the best cross-section of talent
  • Builds a workforce that represents the communities you serve
  • Lower staff attrition rates
  • Demonstrates compliance with the law
  • Boosts team spirit
  • Opens up new business markets

“Disabled candidates stay with us longer and perform as effectively, if not better, than their colleagues.  This includes many people who have been out of employment for many years.”

BT
