Whether this means fully utilising the skills of all your staff; meeting the needs of your customers, avoiding unnecessary absence from work or helping staff with mental health conditions feel like victors and not victims this aims to be a useful tool for you.
To meet this essential business need Wave-length has developed ‘The Well’ which provides organisations with a resource bank; training materials and chances to debate and discuss areas around meeting the needs of staff and customers with varying disabilities, health conditions and capability challenges and whilst its important to note that not even The Well with its resource information can protect organisations against litigation, accusations of unfair dismissal or complaints from customers it will mean that by evidencing that you access and aspire to deliver best practice should be able to assist you in helping a judge to understand your commitment to a fair society.
The Well will provide you with:
- Resources, Research and Toolkits that can assist managers and staff when designing support, development of policy, and interaction with staff and customers
- Training materials, case studies and learning from recent legal cases.
- The opportunity to request research so if there is something in respect of disability that your organisation is struggling to manage or feel inadequately informed about then we will try to assist you with this
- Opportunities for management to ask a question discuss an issue or share best practice either via The Well or by coming along to one of our free to attend events – specially designed to stretch thinking of employers and service providers.
There is no cost to signing up to The Well on the contrary we hope it will work to save you money through improved knowledge, notification of free events and discount off Wave-length’s other support services. The Well not only provides you with the support and information above which is regularly updated and added to but it will also assist in meeting your corporate social responsibility as Wave-length is a Community Interest Company which uses its profits to enhance the occupational opportunities or access to services to people facing social barriers. So if in the future you benefit from our paid services we will use your money to improve local communities helping you to add social value
