MyPlus works with organisations to help them realise the new possibilities of hiring people with disabilities
People are an organisation's 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.
