Retailers encouraged to employ more disabled workers
05 Feb, 2018
The Minister for Disabled People, Health and Work has launched a new campaign to encourage more retail employers to sign up to its trailblazing “Disability Confident” employer scheme, to increase the number of disabled people in the workforce. The government
aims to see one million more disabled people in work by 2027.
Around 123,000 vacancies currently exist in the retail and wholesale sector, and the government believes retailers should “realise the benefits of employing disabled people”.
