One of the most impactful ways to recognise your disabled employees is to celebrate International Day of Disabled Persons. Every December 3rd, business leaders and organisations come together to honour the experiences and achievements made by disabled people and raise awareness for visible and invisible conditions alike.

Disability awareness speakers supply valuable guidance on catering to your employees and recognising the impact of such conditions as autism and multiple sclerosis. By building an inclusive environment, your business will have greater access to talented applicants, therefore benefitting from diverse perspectives.
