Pluss were delighted to attend the Disability Confident launch in London yesterday to receive our
Disability Confident leader certificate from the Minister for Disability, Work and Health, Penny Mordaunt.
We were one of the first 13 businesses to be awarded 'Leader' status. This proves that we are leading the way as a Disability Confident employer and are also helping our local business communities to become Disability Confident. To achieve 'Leader' status we have undertaken a vigourous self-assessment that was externally validated by Huw Davies, CEO of the British Association for Supported Employment.
With guest speakers including Penny Mordaunt, Minister for Disability, Work and Health, MIke Adams, CEO of We are Purple, and Graeme Whippy MBE, Business Disablity Consultant for Channel 4, it was a thought provoking and inspiring event. Pluss left feeling both proud but determined to do more.
Huge congratulations to our fellow Disability Confident leaders: Ingeus, We are Purple, The Clear Company, Possability People, Advisor Plus, Guidant, Foxes Academy, Remploy, KPMG, Microlink, National Crime Agency and Autocom.
