Home Office first to earn disabled employer mark
New ‘ClearAssured’ benchmark to recognise good practice
The Home Office has become the first organisation to achieve a new benchmark in good practice for employing disabled people.
The ‘ClearAssured’ kitemark will recognise employers who have achieved a high standard in the recruitment and retention of disabled talent. The assessment programme follows on from last year’s launch of the Disability Clearkit, a resource developed by leading public and private sector employers to promote good practice and remove barriers in employing disabled people.
The Clear Company – which runs the assessment programme - highlighted several areas of best practice in the Home Office, including the level of support for disabled candidates and using alternative assessment methods such as work trials or working interviews to help see past the disability to the ability that lies beyond.
