People Academy

Welcome to the people academy, supporting human resource professionals at the beginning of their careers. Suitable for HR Officers and Executives, our exciting programme is not to be missed. Every month, the people academy will meet to be mentored on specific themes by leaders within their field. 

The memcom people academy is designed for junior colleagues who might be working towards CIPD levels 3 or 5, typically HR Administrators, Assistants & Officers, but also colleagues working in L&D, OD & training who regularly have to support HR colleagues or wish to increase their HR generalist knowledge.

At this month's session we are being joined by Diane Lightfoot, CEO of the Business Disability Forum. She will be discussing the opportunities that employing people with disabilities can bring to your organisations.

In particular we will be looking at:

  • Facts and figures - myth busting around disability
  • Workplace adjustments – what they are, why they matter, good practice and advice for HR
  • Supporting line managers – what the HR functions needs to do to equip managers with disability confidence and to support team members with a disability
  • Recruitment – how to get it right for disabled candidates
