Disability Confident Employer
Merthyr Valleys Homes is proud to have been awarded the Disability Confident Employer accreditation, which supports employers to make the most of the talents people with disabilities can bring to the workplace.
Over half of workplaces are missing out because they are excluding talented people with a disability. As a Disability Confident employer, Merthyr Valleys Homes is committed to the following:
- Communicating and promoting vacancies.
- Anticipating and making reasonable adjustments for those with a disability; and
- Supporting any existing employee who acquires a disability or long-term health condition, enabling them to stay in work.
“This accreditation will further help us to draw from the widest possible pool of talent. We are committed to being a Disability Confident Employer and continue to find ways of improving how we attract, recruit, and retain employees by removing barriers; ensuring people with a disability have the same opportunities to fulfil their potential. One of the key objectives for MVH is to increase the diversity of our workforce to better represent and therefore serve our local communities. Receiving this accreditation is recognition of just some of the efforts we are making to deliver this commitment.”
Michelle Reid, Chief Executive
