This is BT’s network for disabled employees. Provides support and advice for all disabled employees within BT and their managers. We also support several initiatives in this space.
We make sure disability or changes in health are not a barrier to working at BT. We support people recovering from an illness or injury and help them get back to work through our rehabilitation services.
For anyone who is unable to return to their role, we create suitable alternative positions through our Adjusted Job Search scheme. We also make adjustments to the workplace to help people thrive at work.
This year, we’ve reviewed how this process works in practice to make it simpler and quicker. Employees across the business can record details of their disability – and any related requirements – through our Disability Passport Scheme to help their managers support them better.
Our Able2 support network helps us do this, as well as testing our products and services to ensure they meet the requirements of our disabled customers. Our Customer Inclusion Leadership Panel scrutinises our policies and challenges practices that could adversely impact customers with a disability or impairment.
