The judges praised Remploy, which has a nationwide network of more than 60 recruitment services branches and offices, for its commitment to the advancement of sustained employment for disabled people.

Accepting the award, Jean Cabena, Remploy’s People Director, said: “I’m thrilled Remploy has been recognised for the significant progress it has made towards becoming an exemplar employer of disabled people.

“One of our main objectives is to transform the lives of disabled people by creating equality in employment, helping disabled people gain fair and equal access to sustainable employment and career opportunities and enabling them to achieve their ambitions and maximise potential.

“It’s crucial to the success of Remploy that we not only achieve this by supporting disabled people into sustainable jobs with employer partners, but that we also create diversity within our own workforce.”
