Omni Acheive the Disability Symbol

Many thanks must go to Nicola (Office Manager!), who has helped Omni achieve the disability symbol, awarded by the Jobcentre, by agreeing to take action to meet the 5 Commitments regarding the employment of disabled people.

What are the Five Commitments?

First Commitment - A guaranteed job interview
• To interview all disabled applicants who meet the minimum criteria for a job vacancy and consider them on their abilities

Second Commitment - Consulting disabled employees regularly
• To ensure there is a mechanism in place to discuss at any time, but at least once a year, with disabled employees what can be done to make sure they can develop and use their abilities

Third Commitment - Keeping employees if they become disabled
• To make every effort when employees become disabled to make sure they stay in employment

Fourth Commitment - Improving knowledge
• To take action to ensure that all employees develop the appropriate level of disability awareness needed to make the commitments work

Fifth Commitment - Checking progress and planning ahead
• Each year to review the five commitments and what else has been achieved, to plan ways to improve on them and to let employees and the Jobcentre Plus know about the progress and future plans

This is a big achievement and Omni join many organisations across Britain who currently use the symbol to promote disability awareness, for further information please contact your local Jobcentre or disability employment advisor.
