Disability Confident — Committed

SSP joins Disability Confident scheme

As an employer who’s committed to workplace diversity and equality we’re delighted to announce that we’ve recently signed up to the Government’s Disability Confident Scheme.

The scheme helps companies make the most of the talents that disabled people can offer and is helping us make sure that we’re doing everything we can to attract and recruit talented disabled workers, and support and develop them in their careers at SSP.

As a Disability Confident Committed Employer, we pledge to ensure that our recruitment processes are inclusive and accessible, and that we actively promote vacancies and offer interviews to disabled people.

In addition, we commit to providing adjustments that support the individual needs of our colleagues, be they new joiners, or existing staff members who become disabled or develop a long-term health condition.

We’ll continue to maintain and develop our inclusive Facilities and Health & Safety practices too; building Personal Emergency Evacuation Plans for those who might need help leaving one of our office buildings in the event of an emergency; ensuring doorways are wide enough for wheelchair users, and offering disabled parking bays.

“I’m proud to demonstrate SSP’s commitment to workplace equality with the signing of the Disability Confident scheme and hope that our disabled colleagues, and those considering joining SSP, will play an active role in helping us to further develop our support offering going forward.”

Jemma McKenzie, HR Director
