Local employers from Inverclyde are grouping together to support more disabled into jobs. This event is the first Disability Confident Employer Event in Inverclyde. This is part of a Government pledge to halve the disability employment gap and create opportunities for all.
I’m delighted to both support and attend the upcoming Disability Confident event which is to be held in Greenock Town Hall.
I hope this event will be an opportunity to encourage more Inverclyde businesses and organisations to hire people with a disability. It’s vital everyone has the same opportunity when it comes to work.
I look forward to meeting local employers and learning more about the benefits to businesses of recruiting disabled people.
It is one in a series of events that are part of the Government’s Disability Confident campaign. Led by Minister for Disabled People, Health and Work Penny Mordaunt, it exists to highlights the benefits to businesses of recruiting disabled people and how employers can achieve this. The campaign addresses misconceptions about disabled people in the work place and highlights the benefits of hiring them.
The event will take place on Friday 4/11/16, Drop in between 9.30 am-12.30 pm, Keynote address at 10.00 am, Greenock Town Hall PA15 1LS
