Disability confident certification renewed
5 October 2020
WESC Foundation is proud to announce that our status as a Disability Confident Employer has been renewed until at least 2022.
The Disability Confident scheme was initially created to provide employers with the skills and confidence they need to attract, recruit, retain and develop disabled people in the workplace.
Commenting on the news, Maureen Biss (Director of HR and Enterprise) said:
“As an employer we look at people’s abilities and qualities rather than focus on a disability.
“We have employed many individuals in roles where they have been given the opportunity to develop both their strengths and weaknesses and encouraged to progress in areas they never thought possible.”
