By Ross Linnett, Recite Me Founder & CEO
What does it take to create more job opportunities for disabled people?
It’s a burning question for recruiters and employers.
There are many examples of the answers among the inspiring stories of those involved in the Recruitment Industry Disability Initiative (aka RIDI).
Just take the RIDI Awards 2018 winners.
RIDI creates disability confident recruiters
The RIDI Awards 2018 winners were announced last night at the awards ceremony, which was hosted by XL Catlin at its head office in London.
These are the only UK awards that exclusively celebrate the commitment of employers to improve the prospects for disabled jobseekers.
RIDI creates disability confident recruiters and helps remove the barriers faced by the millions of disabled people who are looking for work.
It’s an honourable mission, and one which we are very pleased to be able to support.
