Employers and workers are being invited to celebrate disabled workers at a special free event hosted by Aberdeen City Council later this month.
Attendees will gain practical insights into recruiting, retaining and including disabled people at work, and to learn about the advice and support available to employers and employees to help organisations become more inclusive.
Disabled workers will tell their stories, alongside employers and support agencies who will discuss with the audience the benefits that people with disabilities can bring to an organisation.
The Lord Provost of Aberdeen, Dr David Cameron, will introduce the event at the Beach Ballroom, supported by Aberdeen City Council Chief Executive Angela Scott.
The Lord Provost said: “An inclusive workplace brings benefits across the board – for employees, customers, the organisation, and across the wider city.
“We hope as many Aberdeen businesses as possible attend the event on March 28 so they might celebrate the Year of Disabled Workers."
Booking is open now and can be done online or by calling or texting 07767 353006.
The Council’s ABZWorks employability service will run a jobs fair for people with disabilities on 18 April. Interested employers with live vacancies should contact email@example.com
The event, marking 2022 as the Year of Disabled Workers, was due to be held in December, but postponed due to bad weather.
