KPMG wants to see disability champions
08 May 2018
UK boards are being urged to assign directors with specific responsibility for disability issues, after research by KPMG found almost 60% of businesses do not currently have a named disability champion at board or senior management level.
As well as calling for more board-level disability champions, the review recommends that boards table disability as a formal agenda item at least once a year. They are also being encouraged to sign up to the Government’s Disability Confident scheme to demonstrate their commitment to disabled talent, and to serving the needs of a diverse customer base.
