Everyone deserves an equal chance to shine. Every company benefits from a diverse workforce.
Bridging the gap to compliance
It’s the law to put reasonable adjustments in place in order that your employees and job applicants have an equal opportunity to shine. The challenge facing most employers is knowing what steps to take to be compliant, effective and confident in managing those adjustments in recruitment and the workplace.
- What do we need to ask and when?
- How do we ask in the right way?
- Are there things we’re not allowed to ask?
- Will we know what to do when people tell us their needs?
- How will we know if it’s a reasonable request?
- Will we manage it well if things go wrong?
Most employers are aware that they are non-compliant, reactive and at risk, but aren’t sure how to bridge the gap to a best-practice approach.
A bridge to compliance exists.
An effective diversity management solution is available and straightforward to implement.

The judges felt that ClearTalents represented a new approach to making adjustments in recruitment and were particularly impressed with results that showed disclosure levels going from less than 5% to 65% and sickness absence rates dropping by nearly 50% in a single year.
