How do you anticipate need?

How do you anticipate need?

Are you just waiting for someone to request a reasonable adjustment? – in March we will be debating a recent case where doing just this cost a substantial amount of money.

When: 10th March, 2015

How do you anticipate need?


Wave-length Seminar

10th March at Adelphi Care Services Ltd, Oak House, 8 The Professional Quarter, Sitka Drive, Shrewsbury Business Park, Sitka Dr, Shrewsbury, Shropshire SY2 6LG

10.00am – 1.00pm – Free to attend

                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                      The Equality Act 2010 states that there is an obligation for employers and service providers to be able to anticipate the need of a customer or employee by having reasonable adjustments in place. In December 2014 a British actress with dwarfism sued the post office for discrimination as she could not reach the chip and pin machines in their branches and their as no reasonable adjustment made in order for her to do so. This resulted in the Post Office having to change the chip and pin machines in over 300 over their biggest branches to improve accessibility as they had not previously anticipated the need of those who may be wheelchair users or, in this case, have dwarfism.

By not anticipating need, you could be risking a law suit and a substantial amount of money to be lost. But how do we anticipate the need of our employees and/or clients when the need has not already presented itself or no-one has requested a reasonable adjustment? Join the debate!

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 10th March – How do you anticipate need?

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.
