Design Reality is proud to announce that we have been officially recognised as a Disability Confident Employer.
The scheme helps employers like Design Reality to recruit and retain great people, and to:
- challenge attitudes and increase understanding of disability
- draw from the widest possible pool of talent
- secure high-quality staff who are skilled, loyal and hard working, and
- improve employee morale and commitment by demonstrating fair treatment
The scheme also helps to highlight those employers who are committed to inclusion and diversity in the workplace.
Mel Randall, Managing Director of Design Reality said: “As a Product Design Agency, one of our main specialisms is developing products to help people overcome difficulties due to disabilities. Such as the Accessibility Handles for BCUHB, or prosthetic leg covering development for Limb-Art.
“Being a Disability Confident Employer further demonstrates our commitment to accessibility in the workplace as well as in our work.
“By using the logo in our email signatures and footers, we hope to make it clear that we welcome applications from people with disabilities for any of our roles. Furthermore, it highlights to our employees that we are committed to supporting them in work should they gain a disability while part of our team.”
