We don't just talk; We do.

We help you create workplace equity and change lives.

The Ability People brings people together. We have the tough conversations and break down the barriers to create authentically inclusive environments where everyone feels they belong. We're here to help your business grow, level the playing field by increasing equity for those who need it most, and change people's lives for the better.

Access Untapped Talent

In the UK alone, there is an untapped pool of high-potential talent of over 5 million individuals with disabilities seeking new job opportunities. By breaking down some of the challenges, whether real or perceived, through open conversation and sharing lived experiences, we open up access to this diverse and capable workforce. We do this by championing disability inclusion, creating accessible application processes, and training managers to hire diverse talent. By promoting authenticity, safety, and belonging, together, we can have a transformative impact on workplaces - and make different normal.

Deliver On DE&I

By sharing our lived experiences, provoking genuine and open conversations with your leadership teams in a non-judgmental way, we're able to help successfully ignite commitment to deliver a meaningful Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion strategy that goes way beyond just ticking the box. We help to build into the organisation's DNA, so that every employee lives the strategy in their work, their thinking and their behaviour.

Improve Retention & Engagement

Working with us to create a truly inclusive culture has a genuine ripple effect. Employees are looking for authenticity in their workplace, and an environment which expects them to bring their true selves to the workplace. By championing authenticity, and belonging, building a culture of psychological and physical safety, fostering a positive and supportive work environment, encouraging open conversation and sharing unique lived experiences, we help break down stigmas and enable EVERYONE to thrive, leading to a more inclusive and engaged workforce.

Prevent Groupthink & Grow

The way we work helps prevent groupthink - the biases that exist within us all can be a less visible but nonetheless powerful blocker to growth. By championing diversity and inclusion, tapping into untapped talent pools, encouraging open conversations, and sharing unique lived experiences, we foster diverse perspectives, helping our customers break free from conformity and achieve growth through innovation.

What NOT to Say to Disabled People at Work

The question “what do you say to disabled people?” should not be a question that needs asking. Disabled people don’t type “what do you say to able-bodied people?” into Google. Why would they?
