Northern England Network

We will be hosting our next Northern England Network on Tuesday 21 May 2024 from 10 am to 11:30 am, open to Business Disability Forum Member and Partner organisations.

Performance management and disability

Emily Jackson, Senior Disability Business Partner at BDF, will share what good performance management looks like. We’ll discuss a number of aspects around this, including developing robust policies, spotting signs that someone needs an adjustment and talking to colleagues about poor performance.

Working with colleagues with speech differences

There are a whole host of speech differences that can affect how your colleagues interact with you and with their role. For example, more than 1% of your colleagues stammer, yet it’s rare that a business considers this when designing standard procedures and ways of working.

STAMMA is the national stammering charity, working with organisations to help them ensure staff who stammer can thrive within the organisation and bring their talents to the business.

Learn which standard procedures may be tricky for your colleagues who stammer, and get practical tips and suggestions for changes you can make that can benefit them as well as those with other speech differences.

 

If you would like to like to attend or request adjustments for this meeting, please contact our Events team.

Please note, this meeting is available to Northern England Network members only.
