Lagardère Travel Retail UK: a label for the inclusion of employees with disabilities

Lagardère Travel Retail UK started working with the Disability Confident programme in 2019, which aims to encourage employers to think differently about disability and take measures to improve how they recruit, retain and develop the talent of people with a disability. Disability Confident certification is a unique opportunity to set an example for our community. The label also shows people with a disability that we value their contribution to our business's success and helps us to attract talent.

We have a five-pronged approach:

  • ensuring an inclusive and accessible recruitment process;
  • providing information about the programme in our job offers;
  • offering interviews to people with a disability;
  • anticipating and making reasonable adjustments as necessary;
  • helping existing employees dealing with disability in order to keep them in employment.

To obtain the first level of Disability Confident certification, we are committed to offering one of the following: work experience, internships, paid employment, apprenticeships, observation postings.

At Luton airport, we are also working with Mencap, which helps young people with mental disabilities to find employment. We received eight people over 12 weeks with the charity. One obtained a full-time job and is still part of the team today.
