Employers who still don't understand diversity.
I find it baffling that even now, in 2013, some employers are still asking why they would want to employ disabled people. Do they not realise that, on average, disabled people:

- Are just as productive as non-disabled people;
- Have less time off sick than non-disabled people;
- Have fewer workplace accidents than non-disabled people;
- Stay in their jobs longer than non-disabled people.

Disabled candidates are premium candidates and should be highly sought after by more enlightened employers.

Access to Work
This little-known scheme is of tremendous help to employers wishing to employ disabled people. Access to Work will help assess any reasonable adjustments the applicant might need, both in order to go through the recruitment process and then in order to carry out their role in the workplace.

It can include help with transport to and from work, transport whilst in work, a support worker (e.g. BSL signer), adaptations to the building, assistive technology and so on. Amazing!
