At ManpowerGroup we are proud to represent the recruitment industry on the Disability Confident Business Leaders’ Group. Disability Confident is a government scheme that aims to get one million or more disabled people into employment. It is designed to help organisations recruit and retain disabled people, by providing a framework that challenges perceptions about disabilities and helps organisations build programmes to support a greater number of disabled people into work.
In 2018, we were recognised as a Disability Confident Leader for our commitment to helping those with disabilities into employment. Level 3 Leader status is an external validation of our commitment to supporting disabled people to obtain and retain meaningful employment. We do this in the following ways:
- We actively look to attract and recruit disabled people
- We proactively offer and make reasonable adjustments as required
- We encourage our suppliers and partner firms to be Disability Confident
- We promote a culture of being Disability Confident
- We support employees to manage their disabilities or health conditions.
ManpowerGroup was also recognised at the 2018 Recruitment Industry Disability Initiative (RIDI) Awards, for our efforts to create more diverse, inclusive workplaces. We were the winner of both the Reasonable Adjustments in Recruitment Award and the Greatest Impact award – which recognises those organisations that ensure disabled candidates can maximise their potential and make a full contribution.
