#WorkWithMe for Employability Day

Employability Day, UK's largest celebration for organisations supporting local people into work, takes place this coming Friday and to mark the occasion IEP will be working with Scope and Virgin Media who will be delivering a webinar to encourage businesses to get involved in their Work With Me campaign

As part of the campaign employers will be asked to sign the #WorkWithMe pledge. By signing the #WorkWithMe pledge, businesses are committing to reviewing their practices to create a more inclusive workplace for disabled people.  As part of the #WorkWithMe community, businesses will have access to many helpful resources that can support you on your journey of becoming a more inclusive employer such as practical guides, stories featuring first-hand experiences from both employers and disabled jobseekers and general information about disability. 

All IEP Members are invited to take part in the webinar which will be streamed live at Shaw Trust in Birmingham and via online dial-in at 11am and 2pm on 28th June – if you would like to register please contact Helen at enquiries@iemployability.org

#WorkWithMe for Employability Day

Employability Day, UK's largest celebration for organisations supporting local people into work, takes place this coming Friday and to mark the occasion IEP have invited Scope and Virgin to host a webinar to their #WorkWithMe pledge

Scope and Virgin Media are working together to break down the barriers disabled people face getting into, staying in and thriving in work. The #WorkWithMe pledge calls for businesses to come together to create more inclusive workplaces for disabled people, demonstrating a commitment to thinking and acting differently about disability in their organisation.  

 

By signing the #WorkWithMe pledge, businesses join a digital community set up to facilitate the sharing of insight, learning and experiences across a range of sectors and industries to build more inclusive workplaces. A growing set of resources, tools and advice is available online to pledgees. In addition, there will be opportunities to engage with a series of face-to-face events focussed on proactively addressing challenges many employers face to supporting disabled people in the workplace.  

 

They are building a unique community of businesses, large and small, creating a place for members to share and learn. Collectively they want to address the barriers disabled people face in getting into, staying and thriving in work. 

All IEP Members are invited to take part in the webinar which will be streamed live at Shaw Trust in Birmingham and via online dial-in at 11am and 2pm on 28th June – if you would like to register please contact Helen at enquiries@iemployability.org
