Recruitment Industry Disability Initiative Awards 2021 – Finalists Announced

The finalists of the Recruitment Industry Disability Initiative (RIDI) Awards 2021 have been announced today after another record year of entries. 
Now, in their 8th year, the RIDI Awards celebrate pioneering employers and recruiters who, as we return to a very different working world, are safeguarding and progressing opportunities for disabled job seekers through accessible and equitable employment policies and processes.
RIDI is a unique initiative to lead change in recruitment by encouraging and supporting recruiters and businesses to remove the barriers faced by the millions of disabled job seekers particularly at a time when many organisations are recruiting to fill a high number of vacancies. 
Head judge Jane Hatton commented:
“The breadth, diversity and calibre of finalists in the 8th annual RIDI Awards actively demonstrates the progress being made in the UK towards greater disability inclusion. Our Awards celebrate the very best of disability confident recruitment and I would like to congratulate all the finalists, who have made it through to the final round of judging. These are stories of best practice and success that should inspire the recruitment industry to continue to take the necessary steps to recruit back better and put disability confident recruitment at the top of the agenda.”
Look out for the virtual awards ceremony on 3rd December.
