On International Day of People with Disabilities WTW highlighted making the workplace more digitally accessible to visible and invisible disabilities. As a Valuable 500 member, WTW is committed to disability inclusion. 

Importance of being a disability confident employer

Colleague Suzie Austen speaks about her experience working at WTW with a disability and the importance of WTW being a disability confident employer. "For me, working at WTW means being accepted and included," explains Suzie. 

"It's important to me that WTW is a disability confident employer so those that are disabled can feel seen, heard and understood within the workplace."

Looking at how WTW supports people with disabilities, Suzie says: "The first is through flexible working, which means you can attend any medical appointments in and around your working day. Lastly is our company culture as it's one where I feel truly accepted and included for who I am."

WTW Global Head of Employee Experience, Suzanne McAndrew, commented: "Accessibility and inclusion go hand-in-hand. They help to foster comfort and power growth, be it as an individual or a collective."
