Small adjustments in the workplace can make a big difference
Remploy is pleased to be partnering with the Department for Work and Pensions (DWP) on their new Disability Confident workplace adjustments campaign. Our CEO Gareth Parry, officially kicked off the campaign alongside the Minister for Disabled People and Channel 4's HQ in London.
A workplace adjustment is a change to a work process, practice, procedure or environment that enables an employee with a disability to perform their job in a way that minimises the impact of their disability.
The campaign aims to give advice and support to employers to help them understand how even small adjustments in the workplace can benefit people with a disability, enabling them to work to the best of their ability.
The new campaign is part of the DWP’s Disability Confident scheme, through which the government is working with employers to remove barriers, increase understanding and ensure that disabled people have the opportunities to fulfil their potential and realise their aspirations.
Remploy was among the first organisations to attain Disability Confident Leader status, which means we act as a champion for the scheme, as well as encouraging and supporting other organisations to become Disability Confident.
Remploy is running a series of events to support employers, such as webinars and masterclasses, as well as providing resources for businesses to help them be Disability Confident.
