People are an organisations most important asset. In order to recruit the most competent employees, you need to select from the broadest pool of candidates, including those who have a disability. In doing so, you can harness a more diverse range of experiences and skills.
Address your skills shortages by opening your recruitment processes up to disabled talent – with 17% of the population (approximately 11 million people) and over 11% of graduates having a disability or a long-term health condition, by focusing on this disabled talent you will grow your talent pool and reach individuals you might normally miss.
Disabled individuals develop skills as a result of their disabilities. Having a disability or long-term health condition challenges individuals to develop unique strengths and talents, giving the person something extra, a Plus. By recognising the opportunity and opening your eyes to the value disabled individuals can bring, you can fill your skills gap shortage and tap into a new talent pool.
MyPlus Consulting works with organisations to help them realise the new possibilities of hiring people with disabilities.

recognise that if they really want to attract and recruit the very best talent they have to be truly inclusive; and that obviously includes those who have a disability. The number of graduates with a disability has increased 265% over the last decade and this number will continue to grow. If employers are not inclusive of disabled students they will miss out on an ever-increasing talent pool.
This workshop will build the confidence and ability of the delegates to attract and recruit disabled students, and ensure they are appropriately supported throughout the recruitment process and that adjustments are efficiently implemented.
