To become a Disability Confident Employer DECA has met certain criteria and committed to continue to offer disabled people access to opportunities through:
an inclusive and accessible recruitment process
suitably communicated and promoted vacancies
offer an interview to disabled people meeting the minimum criteria for a vacancy
anticipation and provision of reasonable workplace adjustments
supporting existing employees who acquire a disability or long term health condition, enabling them to stay in work where appropriate
offering access to activities such as work experience placements and apprenticeships
Danny Avery, DECA Equality, Diversity and Inclusion committee member said,
This accreditation builds on the work we have completed as an organisation to develop a strong Equality and Diversity committed culture throughout DECA. As a Disability Confident employer, we ensure our recruitment process is inclusive and accessible, support employees with disabilities or long term health conditions and guarantee to interview all disabled applicants who meet the minimum criteria for a vacancy.
Gaining this accreditation is in line with DECA’s commitments to Diversity and Inclusion and a key part of our five-year Diversity and Inclusion action plan.
