Silver Star Cleaning – Blog – Disability Confident

October 6, 2020

2020 has certainly been challenging! but with challenge comes achievement and over the last six months we have adapted and changed for the better. Now I would like to take a moment to recognise Silver Star Cleaning and my team and to celebrate one of our achievements during the last 6 months. We are absolutely delighted and proud to be have adapted so that we are now recognized as a Disability Confident employer. We are now really benefiting from several fantastic new staff members to the team who are absolutely thriving.

Disability Confident was developed by employers and disabled people’s representatives to create a movement of change, encouraging employers to think differently about disability and take action to improve how we all recruit, retain and develop disabled people’s opportunities.  Being part of the scheme was a straightforward decision as we celebrate diversity and inclusion across all races, sexual orientation, and disability.  Silver Star welcomes staff of all backgrounds to our fantastic team.

As a Managing Director, I think it is vital that employers get a better understanding of what the program has to offer. Being Disability Confident is a unique opportunity to lead the way in our business and community.  From business to business we are proud to identify as a Disability Confident employer who is committed to equality in our workplace.

Disability Confident businesses play a leading role in changing attitudes for the better.  I am proud to be part of the change in behaviour and culture in within business, network and community and we are reaping the benefits of inclusive recruitment practices.

Through Disability Confident, thousands of employers are helping to:

  • Challenge attitudes towards disability
  • Increase understanding of disability
  • Remove barriers to disabled people and those with long-term health conditions
  • Ensure that disabled people have the same opportunities to fulfil their potential and realise their aspirations
