Bishop Grosseteste University’s (BGU) Business Inspiration Project – based at BGU’s Lincolnshire Open Research and Innovation Centre (LORIC) – has worked hard with a series of key partners, including Jobcentre Plus, the Shaw Trust and East Lindsey District Council to put on an event to assist small businesses in meeting skills shortages by diversifying their workforce.

Succeeding in business is your top priority. So finding the best people is essential. With unemployment at its lowest since the 1970s and skills shortages across most sectors, for many businesses recruitment is becoming ever more challenging.

In East Lindsey District alone there are close to 8000 unemployed people with some form of disability. As an employer based in the region, this event is designed to help you understand what support and assistance is out there to become part of the solution to employ people with a disability who are unemployed.

Being Disability Confident is about recruiting and retaining disabled people and people with health conditions for their skills and talent. By becoming Disability Confident you could discover someone your business just can’t do without.

The event will provide expert advice and signposting to information available to a business, helping them to become disability aware. There will also be some inspiring talks from small and medium sized local businesses who have successfully recruited individuals with a disability, demonstrating how this has positively impacted their business.

Join the Business Inspiration Team on the 9th of October to:

  • Hear Expert Advice – What support is available to you as a business
  • Understand how to make your business more disability aware
  • Hear from Local Employers and Employees
  • Learn about the Small Employer Offer including potential Small Employer Payment

The event will begin at 8am at The Priory Hotel in Louth. For more information or to book your place on this event, please contact Julie Fisher on 07398 893993 or email Julie.fisher@bishopg.ac.uk.
