Totaljobs recently announced that a quarter of people with a hearing condition have left their workplace because of discrimination. When disabled people across the UK have a spending power of £212 billion it is wrong for any business, not to mention illegal, to ignore the skills which people who have a sensory impairment can bring to a company.
This event, sponsored by Mitie, will cover a number of areas, staying legal when recruiting new employees, ensuring that staff who experience an issue at work are properly supported and where funding and advice is available to help employers out.
There will also be a range of captivating speakers, people who have overcome their own sensory issues to make a real difference in the workplace and community. This event promises to be relaxed, informative and inspirational.
Breakfast rolls, tea, coffee and orange juice available
This event is FREE to attend.
