Clear Assured since 2010

E.ON’s inclusive approach to disability recruitment has earned the company Clear Assured status. This is awarded to organisations that are committed to best practice in disability recruitment (specifically, the “removal of barriers from recruitment policies, processes and practices which have the potential to exclude disabled people”).

We first became Clear Assured in 2010.  However, it’s a status that has to be continuously earned, so we have taken a number of measures since then to further enhance our recruitment practices. For instance, we have invested significant resources into updating our careers website to make it more accessible to disabled people. We have also created new content designed to increase applications from this audience — including case studies of employees who have disabilities.

Being Clear Assured is “an important milestone in our diversity journey,” says Sue LaVerne, Senior Vice President of HR, Strategy and Communication. “We have created a ‘feedback loop’ that allows us to continuously check our performance against candidates’ own experiences, making sure that deeds match words.”
