Hands Free become a Disability Confident Employer!
Hands Free Computing are delighted to announce our recognition by the government as a Disability Confident Employer. Building on the foundations we’d put in place to achieve Disability Confident Committed status, we have needed to demonstrate a consistently inclusive approach to our recruitment and retention of disabled employees.
Managing Director of Hands Free, Lawrence Howard, commented “We are proud to be part of Disability Confident. It’s a tremendous scheme and shares the values that we hold here at Hands Free.
We will continue to spread the word about the scheme and encourage other companies to start their journey to becoming Disability Confident. It has made our business a better business for our customers and our staff and reinforces our ethos of social responsibility”
So what is Disability Confident?
The Disability Confident scheme:
- Provides employers with the confidence, skills and tools they need to help them recruit and retain disabled staff as they progress in their careers
- Challenges misconceptions towards disability and employment
- Increases understanding and awareness of disabilities, both mental and physical
- Supports employers to make the most of the talents and insights disabled people can bring to the workforce
