Wave-length Seminar

5th November at Meeting Point House, Southwater Square, Telford, Telford and Wrekin TF3 4HS

10.00am – 1.00pm – Free to attend

This seminar is aimed at Managing Directors, Business Owners, HR and Equality and Diversity Officers and will take a look at current equality issues impacting on business, debate its impact and look at solutions the new Wave-length Well might provide in helping employers

Join the debate on the 5th November – Disabled or not – Is this the Only Question?

One of the unique aspects of disability, compared to the other characteristics protected by the Equality Act 2010, is that there is often disagreement between the employer and employee about whether the employee is in fact disabled and whether the employer was aware, or should have been aware, that the employee was disabled (extract from the Equality of Human Rights Article)

At this seminar we offer the opportunity to debate the recent cases highlighted by the Equality of Human Rights article where employers have found themselves in court and question whether employers could do more to encourage employees and managers to discuss disability, mental health and capability issues. We will also consider why often staff with a disability feel concerned about freely disclosing their condition or challenges to their employer

The Wave-length Well

So if 1 in 5 of your employees are likely to have a disability, mental health condition or long term health condition – How are you managing support for employees? Are they telling you they have a condition? Are you accessing all the grant support? Are busy managers often fearing to ask a member of their team ‘how are you?’ or avoid the question about Mental Health/stress levels and do you fully understand the positive and challenging impacts on your organisation of employing people with varying conditions?  This is where Wave-length can help you and your organisation

We will show you the value of the new Wave-length Well the information it holds and how it can save you money by having disability employment information and training resources at your fingertips.
