Disability Equals Business is a free business oriented disability and equality consultancy service for Sussex businesses. The organisation helps local employers to improve business performance, reduce costs, lessen the risk of litigation and comply with relevant employment legislation.
The service helps businesses to identify the benefits of employing staff from a diverse pool of talent. Support, guidance and training on diversity and disability awareness is offered free of charge. Employers can also get free advice on recruitment, selection, and retention; employment policies and procedures; employers’ rights and responsibilities under the Disability Discrimination Act; reasonable adjustments and available funding.
Businesses can benefit from advice on finding the right person for the job, enhancing their corporate reputation, offering wider sales avenues, and promoting good practice through diversity.
Advice is also offered on supporting employees who become disabled at work. This will become increasingly important as people continue to work later beyond the age of 65.
Businesses will have access to a free Toolkit of support about employing a diverse workforce, a well researched web site, www.disbilityequalsbusiness.org.uk.
Services are funded by the European Social Fund. To take advantage of these services, please contact 01903 708880 or email firstname.lastname@example.org and visit www.disbilityequalsbusiness.org.uk
