That was the message emanating from an event taking place in London this week featuring major UK employers BT and Eon, in which the vital role that disabled workers can play was acknowledged, the Recruiter reported.
According to the two organisations, many recruitment agencies currently have excellent track records when it comes to finding opportunities for disabled candidates, though there are some who fail to adequately support qualified disabled candidates to progress in job applications.
According to recent research results, almost three-quarters of disabled candidates would not tell recruiters about their disabilities as they feared it would have a negative impact on their application.
Caroline Waters, director for people and policy at BT, told the Recruiter that agencies and fellow employers need to "make no mistake" when it comes to eliminating barriers to employment for disabled candidates, as this will ultimately "create a real competitive advantage".
