Now in their fifth year, the awards celebrate progress and recognise the success of organisations’ attempts to increase the inclusion of disabled professionals and are proud to be known as the recruitment industry’s only disability awards
Last year the awards attracted over 75 applications across varied categories such as Innovation in Assessment, Inclusive Partnerships, Employers’ Choice and Overall Candidate Experience. Previous winners have included, E:ON, the BBC, Sainsburys, Amey Consulting, Manpower Group and the John Lewis Partnership as well as many smaller employers and recruiters.
Commenting on the impending deadline, Kate Headley, Chair of the Recruitment Industry Disability Initiative and subject matter expert, said:
“I’d like to urge all employers and recruiters that are engaging with disabled talent to step forward and share their experiences. Be it the beginning or further along your journey to becoming disability confident, every step in the right direction has a significant impact on the prospects of disabled jobseekers and is worth showing off.”
“If you are proud of the changes that your organisation is making, don’t sit on the fence – shout about it. There’s just under a month left to share your stories and enter the RIDI awards. We look forward to receiving your entries.”
Submissions close on the 1st February 2019 and the awards are free to enter and attend.
