TD SYNNEX UK awarded disability confident employer level 2

TD SYNNEX has been awarded Disability Confident Employer Level 2 in recognition of the activities and processes it has in place to ensure that co-workers and job applicants that have a disability are treated fairly and have access to the resources they need.

Disability Confident is a UK government initiative designed to encourage employers to recruit and retain disabled people and those with health conditions. The award follows soon after the launch in March 2023 of TD SYNNEX’s Limitless business resource group (BRG), which has been formed to represent and support people who have physical or hidden disabilities or neurodivergence.

Jodie Carroll, HR director, UK and Ireland, TD SYNNEX said, “the Disability Confident Employer Level 2 certificate is a significant step in driving the TD SYNNEX DEI agenda in the UK and Ireland. With the recent launch of the Limitless BRG alongside three other affinity groups already in place, the refurbishment of our Basingstoke and Bracknell locations, and other positive actions we’ve taken, we are making great strides towards making our business a really great and more inclusive place to work.”

Several other initiatives that make a difference for disabled people are already up and running at TD SYNNEX in the UK. These include a partnership with specialist consultancy, Disability: IN, aimed at improving hiring practices, enhancing the accessibility of vacancies, and strengthening the company’s culture of inclusion in the UK. TD SYNNEX UK is also including disability topics in manager training courses to help build knowledge and understanding around barriers that people with disabilities may face and is working with managers to develop their plans around enhancing diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) practices in their teams. In addition, all managers receive unconscious bias training and have access to DEI training resources.

Jackie Darling, Vice President, Diversity, Equity and Inclusion, TD SYNNEX added, “congratulations to TD SYNNEX UK&I, this award demonstrates their progressive efforts and commitment. Increasing employment and development opportunities for people with disabilities is a global DEI goal for TD SYNNEX, so to get this recognition in the UK&I is fantastic.”
