Our aim is to continue to build an inclusive, supportive and collaborative workplace where everyone has the opportunity to reach their potential. As such, we are delighted to join the Valuable 500 and share our commitments to disability inclusion publicly. Ensuring an inclusive future of work is core to our values and principles. Around 1 billon people across the world have a disability with 80% of people acquiring their disability at working age, we believe business has a pivotal role to play in pushing disability inclusion up the worldwide agenda. We know we still have some way to go, but are committed to progress and will focus on the following:
Appointing senior sponsors to ensure disability is on the inclusion agenda at board-level.
Promoting a common understanding and language around disability across our global network, enabling us to role model disability confident behaviours.
Learning from and sharing knowledge with others including, expert partners such as Business Disability Forum, our disabled colleagues, peers and clients, so we continually challenge ourselves and our approach to creating a truly disability inclusive culture.
