Corporate Adviser - CII calls for insurers to collect data on workplace disability

The Chartered Insurance Institute has teamed up with Scope to develop new guidance on making workplaces more suitable for those with disabilities.

The CII says insurers have a key role to play in ensuring workplaces are more diverse and inclusive, and give everyone the same access to employment.

Its report calls for those working in the insurance profession to collect and report on their workforce’s disability data, so that bosses can identify how many staff identify as disabled and how their experiences compare with their colleagues.

Scope found many employers collect this data but few publish it publicly or use it to understand where disabled employees face barriers at work and use this evidence to inform plans to become more inclusive organisations.

The report explains how to collect data, what kind of information should be gathered plus ways to support the career progression of disabled members of staff.
