What does a truly inclusive workplace look like?

Small changes can really help disabled professionals. But when HR and occupational health departments get innovative, the workplace becomes truly inclusive

Disability Rights UK was quoted in this Guardian article (14 July 2013) in relation to our work on Radiate.

Certainly, Radiate, a network of high-fliers with disabilities and health conditions, proves that employees can do their job as before, or better, with support from their boss, says network coordinator Agnes Fletcher, who says it was "business as usual" for a member whose arthritis gradually worsened. She recalls: "The individual told me: 'I told my boss at the time that I had been diagnosed and he wanted to know if I was going to continue doing what he recruited me to do, which was to make things happen within the risk community in the bank. My boss replied: 'Do what you need to do and let me know if you need anything.'"
