Disability-smart recruitment for recruiters

Hosted by Accenture.

Book your place on our upcoming professional development workshop, “Disability-smart recruitment for recruiters” taking place on the 26 November 2019 hosted by Accenture.

More and more companies understand that a diverse workforce makes them better able to win top talent and improve their customer orientation, employee satisfaction, and decision making. Diversity and Inclusion has become an integral part of today’s successful businesses.

Disabled recruitment candidates are a hidden talent pool waiting to bring value and opportunity to your business. They provide a unique demographic of potential employees that boast the necessary skill set, experience, and passion to take help take organisations forward as a whole.

This professional development workshop is designed to provide recruitment specialists with the knowledge and skills to attract and support disabled talent. Delegates will learn how to identify and remove barriers throughout the end-to-end recruitment journey, best practice with regards to attraction and shortlisting, and how to make the process inclusive for all.

Attending this workshop will help delegates to:

  • Understand the key legal duties around disability in recruitment, and the framework for making adjustments
  • Effectively communicate with candidates about the recruitment process and role requirements and ensure adjustments are made
  • Identify barriers to the various stages of the recruitment process and determine the most appropriate ways to remove them;
  • Build skills and responsiveness to unexpected situations, including making ad hoc adjustments to process and communication
  • Know where to go to for further support

Upon booking, your joining instructions will not only ask what adjustments you may need but also allow us to give you basic step by step guidance on several frequently asked questions such as directions, speakers, topics covered and the event running order.

Who should attend?

This course is suitable for HR or diversity and inclusion professionals. We would also like to welcome anyone with responsibility of overseeing the recruitment process.
