Remploy Celeberates ClearAssured Success

Remploy celebrates ClearAssured success and joins the ClearKit community of expert organisations supporting employers to recruit disabled people.

For many decades Remploy has been providing services which support disabled people to find and stay in work, but as an employer themselves, Remploy face the same challenges as any other organisation when it comes to maintaining an open and inclusive recruitment process. And so, to take an objective look at their own recruitment practice, the team at Remploy has adopted the ClearAssured assessment and development framework to help them identify barriers which might deter disabled people applying to join the company. Using the ClearAssured programme Remploy has been able to identify and implement several improvements to policy, process and practice and as a result they’ve been awarded & lsquo;Proud to be ClearAssured’ status, the UK’s leading standard for employers committed to continuous development of inclusive recruitment best practice.

Celebrating their achievement, Remploy’s Disability Capability Director, Gareth Parry commented:

“To be certain your recruitment processes are open to all candidates is a continuous task of review and development. The ClearAssured programme is a framework ideally suited to give all organisations the opportunity to take an objective view of their own processes and benefit from the expertise available through the ClearKit resource centre to implement improved practice. Becoming ClearAssured is no simple task but having benefitted ourselves from the available support and guidance, and to further utilise our own capabilities around the employment of disabled people, we’ve decided to join the community of expert organisations so that we can help other organisations enjoy the many benefits found in employing disabled people.”

The community of experts within the ClearKit resource centre includes employment lawyers, assistive technology specialists, workplace assessment and accessibility surveyors, skills assessment experts, recruitment specialists, occupational psychologists and many more, all available in one place online.

The Remploy team brings with them a vast array of knowledge and experience of the issues disabled people face in finding, retaining and progressing in employment along with enabling employers to address the challenges they face in trying to attract and harness a diverse workforce. In particular they have a broad knowledge of mental health and learning disabilities and they will be available to answer case specific questions on the topic for the community of more than 2000 employers using the ClearKit resource centre.

Kate Headley, Development Director at the Clear Company added:

“Everyone knows the name & lsquo;Remploy’ they have a history steeped in supporting disabled people in the work place. But I’m not sure all people realise just how much the team can do to support employers as well as candidates.”

“I’m really keen to see the community of employers using the ClearKit resource centre engage with Remploy and ask them for support. The understanding they bring is invaluable and will undoubtedly help employers see talent beyond disability more easily.”

The ClearKit online resource is a toolkit for inclusive recruitment available free of charge to all employers in the UK and can be found at Organisations wanting to utilise the knowledge of the panel of experts available through the site can do so for just &pound300 per year.
