The Workforce Disability Equality Standard (WDES) is made up of ten specific measures to help compare the experiences of disabled and non-disabled staff. Mandated through the
NHS standard contract, its aim is to support positive change for existing employees and enable a more inclusive environment.
The specific measures are:
- Line management and the recruitment and retention of disabled staff
- Improving disability declaration rates
- The role of senior leaders in supporting workplace disability
- Developing WDES action plans
