Code: BH/22/0063 Disability in the workplace for managers

Over the last year we have seen significant changes in the way we work, socialise, and learn. While organisations find new ways to adapt, it is important to ensure that employees continue to be supported and empowered to make a positive contribution in the workplace - that includes employees with disabilities.

With 1 in 5 people having a disability, and 1 in 7 people having a neurodiverse condition, most organisations already benefit from the skills and abilities that disabled employees bring to the workplace.

Barriers, such as widespread lack of awareness and adopting stereotypes, improper use of technology, work environments and a lack of inclusive practice in everyday activities and communication can have a moderating effect on employee engagement, and performance and subsequently affect the way staff engage with colleagues and clients.

This workshop will include case studies based on situations that may be familiar in the workplace. We aim to create a safe and open virtual environment that encourages you to engage with the course material, ask questions and work through case studies and scenarios to enhance your learning experience.
