Commenting on the Government’s announcement that employers are taking more disabled people into the workforce, Rob Wall, head of policy at the Chartered Management Institute has released the following statement.

It's good to see the latest statement that employers are taking more disabled people into their workforce, but they need to ensure there is a planned progression path so that they can develop and utilise their skills to the maximum to benefit the business.


CMI research shows that only 10% of the FTSE 100 companies surveyed rate their performance on developing disabled people within their businesses as fair or very good; whereas 42% rated their performance as fair or very poor.


It is disappointing that companies recognise that they can do more to develop disabled people but are not doing so.
