OMD EMEA is proud to announce its progression from Disability Confident Committed to Disability Confident Employer, level 2 of the UK Government’s Disability Confident scheme.
Businesses accredited with the second tier of the scheme are recognised as ensuring that disabled people have the opportunities to fulfil their potential and realise their aspirations.
Having completed a variety of self-assessments, OMD EMEA is now registered as a Disability Confident Employer for the next 3 years, helping attract new talent to the business and continuing to strive to be an inclusive workplace for everyone.
Gina Ramson-Williams, Chief People Officer at OMD EMEA said “Entering the job market can be a challenge for anyone. We feel it is important to be aware of any potential unconscious bias to ensure that there is equal opportunity for all. Our journey began with us exploring how we could get started and any available support, which led us to the Government’s Disability Confident scheme. The Scheme supports people with disabilities to gain employment and provides employers who don’t know where to start with valuable tools to carry out assessments alongside solid guidance on what they can do to improve.”
