Your Disability Strategy for 2010

Do you sometimes feel that you are spending a lot of time and resource on trying to progress your disability agenda but aren’t actually getting anywhere?

This often happens when organisations adopt a scatter gun approach – trying anything that comes along, just for the sake of doing something. However this rarely leads to sustainable results.

However it doesn’t have to be this way. The organisations that are making the most headway in forging ahead with their disability agenda are those who have a clear vision of what they want to achieve and have a robust, joined up strategy for getting there. Without these two key components it’s hard to make progress.

To help you work out what your aims, objectives and priorities are for 2010, start by asking some key questions:

  • What do we want to achieve?
  • Why do we want to do this?
  • What are the consequences if we don’t do this?

Once you know what you wish to achieve and why you can start thinking about what it look like. Depending on where you are in your Disability Agenda you may be considering the following:

  • Senior management engagement
  • Understanding the needs of your disabled employees
  • Education and awareness for people; such as line managers, HR, front of house staff
  • A robust reasonable adjustment process
  • Inclusive attraction and recruitment practices (that work!)

The options for achieving your objectives are also endless. These include one to one coaching / advice, lunchtime learning sessions, workshops, an internal Disability Café.
