Diverse Communities

We’re committed to promoting equal opportunities and we value diversity. We want complete equality for everyone who works for Derby Homes or uses our services. To show our commitment we have policies, procedures and guidelines which promote and support equality for everyone.

To show our support for disabled people, we:-

 

  • interview all applicants with a disability who meet the minimum criteria for a job vacancy, and consider them on their abilities
  • Met with disabled employees to discuss what more we could do to  fully develop their abilities
  • do all we can to ensure any employee who becomes disabled, stays in employment
  • make sure all of our employees have a full understanding of disability, and how they can support it in the workplace
  • review our position on disability each year, to make sure we’re doing everything we can. We communicate any improvements we make to our employees and the Employment Service.

We received the Disability Symbol in recognition of the action we’ve taken to meet the five commitments regarding the employment, retention, training and career development of disabled employees.
