Publica Group has demonstrated its commitment to support people with disabilities and long term health conditions by being awarded the Disability Confident Accreditation.
The accreditation means that, as an employer, Publica is taking action to ensure that people with disabilities and long term health conditions feel supported, engaged and able to fulfil their potential in the workplace.
The accreditation recognises some of the proactive steps we are taking to support people with disabilities as they apply for vacancies and work at Publica.
These steps include offering interviews to all candidates who meet the minimum criteria for the role, and being flexible with our recruitment processes. For example, allowing CV applications, offering video conference interviews and supporting flexible working patterns where possible. It also means that we take active steps to make adjustments in the workplace to support staff with disabilities.
We have also been working with Inclusive Employers to deliver work experience opportunities to people with learning disabilities.
Managing Director of Publica Group, David Neudegg said: “We think being ‘Disability Confident’ is one way of showing our commitment to creating an inclusive and diverse place to work. We always continue to look for ways to do more, but this accreditation demonstrates to our employees and potential employees that we take our commitment to supporting people with both physical and mental disabilities at work very seriously.”
