Be Disability Inclusive – Ethical, Smart and Good for Organisations
On the evening of 8 February 2018 Ayrshire DICE delivered a presentation on helping employers to be Disability Confident to the Ayrshire Group of the Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development at the Fenwick Hotel. The presentation was delivered by Steering Group members of Ayrshire DICE from North Ayrshire Health and Social Care Partnership, NHS Ayrshire and Arran, East Ayrshire Council, Ayrshire College and DWP.
The purpose of Ayrshire DICE is to help employers to be disability-confident through having easy access to a network of support. It now has over 30 partner organisations that are working together in Ayrshire to take every opportunity to inform and support employers. From household names to new dynamic organisations, all of which have the commitment and focus to assist local employers to provide supportive relationships with people with disabilities or health conditions, for mutual benefit.
Ayrshire DICE can offer professional advice on a range of issues and opportunities through its partners. Better still its free of charge and only a phone call or a click away. Whether its advice on developing policy and strategy, practical support on recruitment and retention or any matters relating to disabilities and health conditions, Ayrshire DICE is here and ready to provide support.
It is fully understood that balancing the needs of the individual and the needs of the business or organisation can be tough. DICE Ayrshire can help organisations through the maze to maximise the benefits. It is an ethical approach as well as the smart thing to do with businesses and organisations citing higher retention rates, stronger staff morale and improved performance when positive and supportive action is taken.
