Employers and recruiters have just hours to share their stories on their involvement with disabled talent by entering the Recruitment Industry Disability (RIDI) Awards. 

Now in their second year, the RIDI Awards celebrate progress and recognise the success of organisations that are making headway in increasing the inclusion of disabled professionals.

Last year they attracted more than 50 applications across categories including Innovation in Assessment, Inclusive Partnerships, Employers’ Choice and Overall Candidate Experience.

Previous winners included Sky Blue Carillon, CEB/SHL, E:ON, the BBC, Sainsbury’s and Eversheds in partnership with Guidant Group as well as many smaller employers and recruiters.

“The simple fact that up to 85% of disabled jobseekers report challenges during the recruitment process highlights that organisations are currently shutting the door on a vast array of talent,” commented Kate Headley, Director of Consulting, Clear Company and spokesperson for the Recruitment Industry Disability Initiative. “But even small steps are dramatically having an impact on the business landscape and increasing numbers of disabled jobseekers are being on-boarded as a result every month.”

Ms Headley urged businesses and organisations that have acted positively to enter the RIDI Awards and ensure that their stories are heard and inspire other enterprises.

Submissions close on the 31 July 2015 with the winners announced on 5 November 2015 and the awards are free to enter and attend.
