The retail sector is showing a positive commitment to disability equality, according to a new report by the Employers' Forum on Disability (EFD).
The results of the Disability Standard 2007 survey show that, on average, 72% of participants from the retail sector are ensuring disability equality in work, workplace design and employee support.
Just over 70% of retail participants were also ensuring disability equality in the recruitment and selection of staff.
Meanwhile, 63% of retail participants were shown to ensure accessibility of products and services.
"I am delighted to see a growing commitment in the retail sector to becoming disability confident," said Susan Scott-Parker, chief executive of the EFD.
"These results demonstrate that retailers realise that becoming disability confident can bring real business benefits."
