Enable is a network that raises awareness of disability-related topics across the business, while offering support and guidance to our colleagues and line managers. The Mitie Foundation & Enable network completed a self-assessment of Mitie and have been recognised as Disability Confident Employer (Level 2).
Disability Confident is a DWP Scheme that supports employers to make the most of the talents disabled people can bring to the workplace. Being Disability Confident is an opportunity for employers to lead the way in their community and to discover skills and talents they cannot do without.
We have committed to delivering the following activities as a Disability Confident Employer:
Provide work experience
Providing paid employment (permanent or fixed-term)
Advertising vacancies and other opportunities through organisations and media aimed particularly at disabled people
Providing mentoring, coaching, buddying and or other support networks for staff
Guiding staff to information and advice on mental health conditions
Providing occupational health services if required
We are now working towards Level 3, by delivering our commitments, recording the activity and progression made. Target is to achieve DC Leader (Level 3) status by December 2021.
