thebigword has been registered as a disability confident employer for the next 3 years.

By signing up to this initiative, the global language technology company is achieving recognition for our inclusive and accessible recruitment process which includes communicating our vacancies through a range of channels and offering interviews to disabled people if they meet the minimum criteria for a job.

Chief People Officer, Leanne Gregg said: “thebigword is an extremely diverse organisation and we want to keep it that way. This registration demonstrates our commitment to removing barriers to employment for those with disabilities, something we are extremely passionate about.”

The Disability Confident scheme supports employers to make the most of the talents disabled people can bring to a workplace. The scheme helps employers recruit and retain great people, draw from the widest possible pool of talent, secure high quality staff who are skilled, loyal and hard-working and improve employee morale and commitment by demonstrating that you treat all employees fairly

It also helps customers and other businesses identify those employers who are committed to equality in the workplace.
