Tea/Coffee and Biscuits
Join us for an informative overview of the Disability Confident scheme and how it can support you recruiting and retaining employees with disabilities or health conditions. There will be a range of speakers sharing their knowledge around disabilities and health conditions in the work place. You will also have the opportunity to learn about Access to Work.
Often referred to as the government’s best kept secret, Access to Work can support employers recruit and retain employees with disabilities. In April 2019, funding available to support disabled employees increased to almost £60,000. At the event you will learn how you and your employees can benefit from the support available.
The Disability Confident scheme supports employers to make the most of the talents disabled people can bring to your workplace. It is a free membership scheme, with almost 12, 000 employers already signed up. Employers will discuss how they have benefited from the scheme and you will have the chance to sign up on the day.
Tea and Coffee will be served from 08:30, giving you an opportunity to network with Damian and fellow guests prior to the presentations.
Places are limited so we encourage you to book your tickets as soon as possible to avoid disappointment.
