Disability Confident

Is your Business Disability Confident?

The Disability Confident scheme explained

Disability Confident is a government scheme that helps employers attract, recruit and retain disabled staff. It provides advice and information to help organisations think differently about disability and how to make the workplace more accessible. The Disability Confident scheme has replaced the previous Guaranteed Interview scheme and Two Ticks scheme.

Benefits for businesses

The Disability Confident scheme can help employers:

  • tap into a wider pool of talent to meet their workforce needs
  • recruit and retain high-quality staff
  • reduce staff turnover, saving time and money on recruitment and training
  • hold onto valuable skills and experience
  • reduce sickness absence
  • improve staff morale by showing a commitment to treat all employees fairly
  • positively change attitudes, behaviours and cultures.

How employers can become Disability Confident

Over 18,000 organisations have signed up to the scheme. There are three levels of commitment and employers must complete each level before moving onto the next:

Once an organisation has achieved any of the above levels, they’ll be awarded a certificate in recognition of their achievement and a badge for their website and other materials for 3 years. Plus, if they’ve reached levels 1 or 2, they’ll receive a self-assessment pack to help continue the journey to becoming a Disability Confident Employer or Disability Confident Leader.
