University College London Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust (UCLH), a recent winner of the 2014 Personal, Fair and Diverse (PFD) awards, has taken further steps to support employees with disabilities.
Their dedication has not gone unnoticed, as they become one of the first organisations in the UK to be certified by the International Disability Management Standards Council.
UCLH received the award following an in-depth audit which examined UCLH’s culture, policies and practices and tested them against the views of managers, trade unions and
a employees. The results were then bench-marked against other organisations from across the world.
Measuring 16 different areas (including employee/management support, workplace culture, management information, employee benefits, and support for employees during and after sickness absence) UCLH outperformed the UK and global industry average in 15 out of the 16 areas.
To find out more about the process and what UCLH learnt from their experience read the full case study on the ULCH website.
