Drawing on the results of the CIPD’s Health and well-being at work survey report 2018 and other research, Rachel will consider:

  • The scene – understanding the disability employment gap and the Government’s vision and proposals for improving the employment prospects for people with a disability or long-term health condition
  • The wider trends influencing this public policy agenda – e.g. the ageing population and workforce
  • The employment prospects and experience of people out of or in work now who have a disability or health condition
  • The employment experience of people with a mental health condition
  • How to narrow/close the disability employment gap? The role of employers and what needs to change to overcome the barriers to good employment?
  • What role do good workplace practices play in improving the attraction, retention and progression of people with a disability?
  • How can we develop more inclusive workplace cultures and reduce stigma, and what’s the role of line managers?
