We’re proud to be an accessible and inclusive organisation where people of all abilities want to work and collaborate: nothing is a barrier to success.
From the first stages of recruitment through to each working day with Capgemini, support is always at hand. For team members with a disability, mental health condition or caring responsibility, our Disability, Carers & Allies employee network provides a space to meet others at Capgemini and share advice, questions and experiences.
Here’s a snapshot of what we’ve achieved so far:
- Capgemini has signed the Time To Change Employer Pledge: committing to continue building a working environment where employees feel able to talk openly and honestly about mental health – and know where to go when seeking help.
- We have educated and mobilised over 120 mental health champions to support colleagues.
- Capgemini is a member of the Business Disability Forum that provides training, podcasts and comprehensive advice on conditions and adjustments
- We hold a Disability Confident Employer badge, which recognises Capgemini’s commitment to supporting team members with disabilities.
- Our commitment to supporting our people’s mental health has been recognised by Mind, who awarded us Silver in their 2017/18 Workplace Wellbeing Index.
- We are committed to raising awareness and supporting team members with hidden disabilities. Also, a member of The Hidden Disabilities Sunflower Campaign.
This year, Capgemini UK is putting a spotlight on invisible disabilities via a new campaign: ‘Now You See Me’. While raising awareness of a number of conditions, we will also be adopting the nationwide ‘Sunflower Scheme’ and looking at best industry practices to see where we can improve.
