Visionary receives RNIB’s Visibly Better Employer accreditation
At Visionary, we pride ourselves on being an accessible and inclusive employer, which is why we are delighted to have received RNIB’s Visibly Better Employer accreditation!
RNIB continually campaigns to change the attitudes of employers, encouraging organisations to be more positive about employing blind and partially sighted people. They have created the Visibly Better Employer Standard, enabling organisations to share their commitment as an accessible and inclusive employer. Organisations which have also received the accreditation included Thomas Pocklington Trust, Vision Foundation and Tesco.
The accreditation looks at six criteria including, recruitment process, support, and personal development available for staff who are blind or partially sighted. Initially, organisations complete a self-assessment, which is then reviewed by RNIB. If there are any areas where an organisation can improve, RNIB are able to provide advice, support and in some areas, resources.
If you are interested in finding out more or to download the self-assessment form, please head over to the RNIB website – Visibly Better Employer accreditation or contact the RNIB Employment Team to find out more, email: VisiblyBetterEmployer@rnib.org.uk
