Webrecruit - Disability Confident Employer

Webrecruit has been accredited as a Disability Confident Employer


The UN International Day of Persons with Disabilities (IDPD) is almost upon us (Friday 3rd December 2021), reminding everyone of the importance of encouraging inclusivity and accessibility in all works of life, as well as in the workplace.


The IDPD is designed to promote action in all sections of society to raise awareness about disability issues and to draw attention to the benefits of an inclusive and accessible society for all.


So, how can you practically commit to and evidence your support of disability confident initiatives in the workplace? Recently, Webrecruit was accredited as a Disability Confident Employer, in recognition of our support in making our workplace accessible and inclusive, and we strive to encourage our clients to do the same via the work we do with Job Advertisements and Webrecruit ATS, our inhouse Applicant Tracking System.


Top tips for creating a Disability Confident workplace


So, what practical things can you do? Read on for some practical tips about what you can do in the workplace, from recruitment to onboarding to day-to-day operations.


Be Disability Confident from the beginning. Being Disability Confident as an employer starts from your job advertisements and how you recruit. For example, from a job advertisement perspective, make sure your language is jargon-free and in clear English and advertised on websites, where possible, that have accessibility options to support as wide a candidate pool as possible. If you are accredited as a Disability Confident Employer, make this clear in your job advertisements and highlight you can make adjustments, where reasonable, to the recruitment and hiring process.


Interviews play a significant part. Interviews and selection process fairness is vital to being truly Disability Confident. Some organisations will offer a job interview to all disabled people who meet the minimum criteria; whilst this is not compulsory, it does provide disabled people with a heightened chance of being able to showcase their skills and suitability for a role. It is also important to highlight that you can make adjustments to the recruitment process for disabled applicants, where reasonable, and that you can offer alternative methods and inroads into the workplace, such as work trials. It is also important to make sure that all involved in the recruitment/hiring process are fully aware of any adjustments you can make, as well as alternative selection methods that may be available.


Onboarding – Support & Train. Getting the hiring process is important as a gateway for disabled persons to access the workplace; however, hiring is such a small part, and any onboarding and training programme must be fit for purpose. Where possible, it is key that all training and hiring managers have access to internal policy guidance regarding what adjustments your organisation will make in the workplace for both training and day-to-day duties. There is a lot of support out there regarding how to access and implement adjustments to make your workplace Disability Confident.


Retention & Engagement. In addition to reasonable adjustments being made in the workplace, policies that support guidance around sickness-related absence are important; it is important that all employees, including disabled persons, feel supported and understood should they not be able to attend work due to an underlying disability or health-related issue. Access to Work and Occupational Health can be important partners to keep in mind as part of your ongoing commitment to employed disabled persons in the workplace and ensuring your mentoring and coaching schemes are truly fit for purpose and accessible to all will support engagement and retention.


As of November 2021, Webrecruit has been accredited as a Disability Confident Employer. If you would like to find out more about this scheme, please click here.

  6. Overall, most growers are disappointed with the seed strain options found at the NSLC. Therefore, you should always buy weed seeds from online seed banks that ship to Nova Scotia. The government’s Prince Edward Island Cannabis Management Corporation, will operate four cannabis retail stores in 2018 in addition to their online store, selling dried cannabis, cannabis oil, seeds and seedlings. Additional stores may be added in future. No other entity is licensed to retail recreational cannabis in the province. Cannabis for medical use is still sold only by licensed producers; no change in this aspect has been made. If you’re buying seeds in the interest of growing your own weed, something to bear in mind is that most provinces and territories have a four-plants-per-household limit. The only provinces and territories where it is not permitted in any circumstance to grow your own are Nunavut, Quebec, and Manitoba. https://eleos.org.ua/community/profile/aurelioschuler/ By Toronto Life  October 20, 2021 On an individual level, this exemption was successfully relied upon for patients undergoing end-of-life treatments. On August 4, 2020, Patty Hadju, Canada’s Minister of Health, permitted four terminally-ill Canadians to obtain psilocybin to help alleviate anxiety and depression. This exemption has been deemed as marking a shift in the legal landscape and awareness of the potential medical relief of psychedelics. The founder and chair of TheraPsil has seen this decision as a game changer for the industry. The best place in Ottawa to buy a magic mushroom is on their trusted websites. Numerous websites in Ottawa sell the said item. Online e-commerce such as top-shelf shrooms, magic mushies, and shroom nexus are just a few of the many trusted websites for shroom dispensaries.
