BBC aims to improve inclusion in the workplace

The BBC have accepted a number of recommendations to make it a more diverse and inclusive workplace. The changes are aimed at improving both recruitment and career progression for existing employees. The recommendations include:

  • Increasing the BBC’s target for disability in its workforce from 8% in 2020 to 12% in 2022;
  • Collecting more detailed data on the nature of disabilities disclosed by BBC employees;
  • Including disabled employees in all development and leadership programmes;
  • Ensuring recruitment processes and trainee and apprenticeship schemes provide specific support for disabled applicants, which is made clear when people apply for roles;
  • Introduce a centralised ‘BBC Passport’ to inform managers about the support each person needs; and
  • Mandate disability awareness training for all team managers.
