Values into Action Scotland assists businesses to successfully recruit, retain and develop employees with learning difficulties or autism. We provide good information, advice and practical support to businesses, enabling them to develop diversity in their recruitment.

This programme is called Diversity Works 4 U. As a result of our input, businesses can improve performance, increase innovation and enhance the company reputation far beyond the social and corporate responsibility tick box.

What we can do for you

» Using lean methodology, help you to figure out how to tap into the disability market and improve business performance

» Design bespoke comprehensive capacity building and offer easy to implement diversity strategies

» Assist in identifying opportunities where vacancies can be tailored to capitalise on skills and improve business efficiency.

Why this makes sense

With 1.1 billion people globally having a disability, controlling more than £2.5 trillion annually, this market is about the size of China. Stakeholders in disability, friends and family, represent an additional two billion people with a disposable income of £5.1 trillion.

Companies must see disabled people as customers first. If you want to sell to these customers, you must recruit, promote and retain them. How else will you fully understand and tap into your market?
