Why Employ Disabled People? Sign up for our workshop & webinar 12 May 2015

 

“Employing a disabled person is not an act of charity, it is potentially a wise business decision” (Evenbreak 2014).

Besides the many moral, ethical and legal reasons why organisations should consider employing disabled people, the business case for it has largely been neglected. A persisting myth among employers is that employing disabled people is an expensive risk. Is it so?

To celebrate Diversity Day Luxembourg, Time For Equality  invites you to look into the business benefits of employing disabled people and of inclusive employment practices, and to challenge some of the current perceptions and stereotypes about disability.

We are proud to partner for this event with Evenbreak, an innovative, not-for-profit social entreprise set up in the UK by Jane Hatton, to help inclusive employers attract more talented disabled people and to help disabled jobseekers find work with employers who will value their skills.

During the workshop Jane Hatton, Evenbreak’s Founder and Director, will be sharing with us – via a live webinar – her unique perspective coming from her personal experience, both as a HR expert and entrepreneur, and as a disabled person herself.

The main aims of the webinar are:

  • To identify the business case for employing disabled people
  • To explore the implications of inclusive practice
  • To be confident around disabled people.

There will time for questions and answers at the end of the webinar.
