As always, we are committed to equality in the workplace. So, we’re delighted to be able to announce that Dougall Bailie is now a registered Disability Confident employer. The Disability Confident scheme exists to support employers in making the most of the workforce by employing disabled people. The voluntary scheme was developed by employers and disabled people’s representatives.
Amongst the many benefits of Dougall Bailie being a Disability Confident employer for both employees and the business, is:
• Being able to tap into the vast pool of talent that currently exists amongst people with disabilities and develop people that have valuable skillsets.
• Increasing our understanding of disability and how to make the most of the opportunities provided by employing disabled people.
• It helps to remove barriers that may be currently preventing disabled people, and those with long-term health conditions, from accessing employment.
• Morally, it allows us to play our part in ensuring disabled people have the opportunities to fulﬁl their potential and realise their aspirations.
Currently, we’re registered at level one of the three-level scheme. At the moment, we are Disability Confident Committed, with the opportunity to develop further into a Disability Confident Leader.
