Using Technology to Access Untapped Talent – Inclusion Scotland

28 August 2020 

A disabled people's organisation is urging companies to continue using technology to access untapped talent through more inclusive employment practices and support employees as lockdown is lifted.

Inclusion Scotland works to remove barriers "to disabled people's economic, social and civic inclusion, and to promote their rights, choices and voices, as full and equal citizens". Through its "We Can Work" internship programme for disabled people, it has experience guiding employers such as STV and Sopra Steria and organisations including the Scottish government and charities on how to make work environments and practices more accessible.

Inclusion Scotland already had established flexible and remote working practices that facilitated the transition into total home working when they became concerned about the coronavirus pandemic.
