Barclays aims to attract talented people and support disabilities or health conditions by providing the equipment and adjustments that enable our people to excel.
The insights of our colleagues with disabilities help us to identify new ways of making our products, services and facilities accessible to everyone. For example, we run Disability Listening Groups, hosted by senior executives across the business; these forums provide colleagues with disabilities the opportunity to meet with senior leaders and provide input into tactical changes to improve the working environment.
Our disability employee network, Reach, is open to all colleagues who have an interest in disability. They provide career development support, and opportunities for education and networking, as well as supplying relevant feedback on policies, products and services.
We launched our Accessibility Standards in 2013, which is our commitment to helping those with disabilities achieve their goals. We believe in creating a truly inclusive and accessible environment for all of our clients, customers, and colleagues.
