14/12/2018 - 06:00
Hospitality provider CH&CO has been awarded ‘Disability Confident Leader’ status by the government, recognising its “commitment to employing, supporting and promoting disabled people in the workplace.”

The accreditation also reflects the company’s effort at encouraging others to become ‘Disability Confident,’ too.

Run by government, the ‘Disability Confident’ scheme aims to help UK businesses employ and retain people with disabilities and other health conditions; help recognise their skills; and give them a chance to achieve their aspirations.

The meticulous assessment process saw CH&CO judged on its policies, procedures and culture, including

Providing a fully inclusive and accessible recruitment process

Ensuring employees have appropriate disability equality awareness

Providing a supportive environment that is inclusive and accessible for employees, clients and customers

Promoting a Disability Confident culture

Encouraging suppliers and partners to be Disability Confident

CH&CO group director of human resources, Alison Gilbert, said: “Inclusivity and accessibility have always underpinned (CH&CO’s) recruitment and employment policies, and processes and are an important part of our culture.

“It’s fantastic that this has been formally recognised with the Disability Confident Leader status.

“We employ over 6,200 people and our team is incredibly diverse. Everyone makes a valuable contribution to the business based on their individual skills.

“We will continue to nurture and develop our people and work with our partners, including Springboard and Foxes Academy, to recruit from the diverse and exciting talent pool and to promote dynamic careers in hospitality to all.”
