What will be covered

This course is part of a series in which AbilityNet’s workplace inclusion experts discuss the importance of embedding inclusivity at every stage of the employee journey. This  course focuses on performance measurement and career development for your employees. 

Developing and promoting diverse teams makes good business sense. 85% employees agreed that a diverse, inclusive workforce offers the different perspectives a company needs to power its innovation strategy. 

However, ONS data showed that disabled people are less likely to hold management, senior or professional positions than non-disabled people and more likely to work in elementary occupations. What sorts of barriers to progress might you have in your workforce and how might your performance measurement processes be disadvantaging important team members?    

  • AbilityNet’s workplace inclusion experts will discuss the importance of embedding inclusivity at every stage of performance and career development in your organisation.
  • The course is interactive and practical and involves real life case studies and employee feedback to help articulate the benefits and how technology can be used to help achieve this.
  • Attendees will use AbilityNet’s employee inclusion journey GAP analysis questions to help identify gaps in their own process and understand tech powered solutions that can help.
