Over the last few months, we have been working on a project to make The Westgrove Group a ‘Disability Confident Employer’ as recognised by the Department of Work and Pensions.
We are pleased to confirm that we have achieved the first stage accreditation which means we are a ‘Disability Confident Employer’. This is a government supported scheme that supports organisations like ours to make the most of the talents that people with disability can bring to our workplace. The scheme helps us recruit and retain great people; draw from the widest possible pool of talent; secure high-quality employees who are skilled, loyal and hardworking; and improve employee morale and commitment by demonstrating that we treat all of our people fairly.
Being named a Disability Confident Committed employer is the first of the three levels to support us on our Disability Confident journey. You can read more about the Disability Confident scheme here.
Managing Director, Claire Mckinley-Smith, comments, ‘Westgrove are already an inclusive employer and work hard to ensure we are accessible to all when recruiting and employing, but we are very proud to have been accredited in this way.’
We are delighted to have been officially accredited as a Disability Confident employer.
