Prime Minister Tony Blair launches a major Disability Rights Commission campaign tonight at its London headquarters.
The campaign, called Actions Speak Louder than Words, will challenge employers to go beyond the minimum statutory requirements of the Disability Discrimination Act.
Speaking to exclusively to Personnel Today this week, the Prime Minister calls on HR managers to work with the Government to convince firms that employing disabled people can benefit business performance. Blair admitted that the Government also needs to address how it can employ more disabled people in its own workforce.
