Supporting people with disabilities
At Barclays, we’re fully committed to increasing opportunities for people with disabilities and mental health conditions.
To move forward, we’ve launched campaigns and continually consider different recruitment models. We have been awarded gold status by the Business Disability Forum for our work towards creating a truly inclusive and accessible environment for all of our customers, clients and colleagues.
This is me
In 2014, we
launched our flagship campaign – This is Me – to tackle the stigma around
mental health in the workplace. The basic idea was simple. Real
colleagues would introduce themselves with their own personal story. And, as in
real life, their mental health condition and how they manage it would be just
part of that story. Four years later, This is Me has gained incredible
momentum, helping people not only within Barclays but across the City of London
feel able to speak out and break cultural silences.
