to be open to change? Seriously?

I’m speaking next week at the GradIreland Recruiters Conference and while preparing for this, I spoke to a friend & colleague about how his company/ employers  had changed their approach to hiring people with disabilities. His answer – “we were open to it”. So simple, yet so essential.

Where a company is wholly, strategically, committed to an issue, making it happen becomes much simpler. When it’s in company policy, when the CEO (or equivalent) is backing or pushing the concept, the pace of change is faster. Really – we’re asking companies, employers, to open their minds. We’ll help with the rest.
