One Response to Disability and Employment: The Business Case

  1. I manage a supported employment service and distributed the film to our front line delivery staff to be used as a marketing tool to engage with employers.
    Having viewed the film, the message is clear, concise and simple. People with disabilities/health issues have much to contribute to business and there is a valid business case for developing a workforce inclusive of people with disabilities and health issues. We will also use the film for Disability Awareness Training, and induction of new staff.
    Thank you
