Since the inception of the partnership, we have helped transform the lives of many disabled people by supporting them into employment. One of these many individuals is Gwyneth Evans who was featured in a case study in May 2015.

We have recently re-affirmed our commitment to support disabled individuals to find rewarding employment by re-signing our partnership agreement.

The partnership focuses on:

  • Placing the 2,000th candidate into the business.
  • Remploy providing practical help, advice and guidance to TCFM on recruiting and sustaining disabled employees.
  • Working in partnership with Remploy on a programme designed specifically to support managers in Training in Systematic Instruction (TSI), better supporting employees with learning disabilities.
  • TCFM becoming one of the most disability friendly employers within the facility management sector.

The company’s commitment to increasing their disability confidence has been further strengthened by training managers on disability and diversity awareness, as well as purchasing Remploy’s Disability Guide. The guide provides TCFM employees with simple and practical advice and guidance on supporting disabled people and those with long-term health conditions in the workplace.

The partnership between TCFM and Remploy has proved an unqualified success by any measure; ensuring the successful sustainment of their employees.

Matt Reed, Remploy’s Director of Employer Services, explains:

“TCFM is a shining example to all employers of just what you can achieve in disability employment when you make a long-term commitment to develop both your workforce and your management.  Their drive to increase the number of disabled employees in their business, together with their commitment to increase their organisation’s disability confidence is one of the key reasons they attract so many disabled individuals who want to work for them.” 

Beth Carruthers, Remploy’s Chief Executive, who attended the re-signing said,

“TCFM has steadily grown to become one of our Top 10 accounts and continually support us in all that we are trying to achieve by supporting many more disabled people in to work.”
