Inclusive jobs are those which include candidates from every background and walk of life. An inclusive job is one which is genuinely accessible to every kind of person and does not exclude someone from doing the job based on a disability, health condition, ethnic background, sexual orientation, or otherwise.
Inclusive jobs and inclusive job postings allow for less discrimination, accidental or intentional, in the world of recruitment and employment. This actively encourages diversity and promotes an equal playing field in the world of work.
Why Are Inclusive Jobs Good?
Inclusive jobs are good both for the economy and for the general public.
Recent figures show that the current rate of employment for disabled people in the U.K. is 52.7%, compared to 75.7% of non-disabled people. Statistics also show that people of the White ethnic group still have the highest rate of employment out of all ethnic groups in the U.K.
Access to inclusive jobs would be a force to change these figures and allow a more fair and equal representation of groups in the world of work. Having inclusive jobs more easily seen and more easily accessible would allow people who would have otherwise been excluded from roles to enter those roles.
More inclusive jobs could act to increase employment levels and boost the economy. They would also act to increase the mental health and wellbeing of those in groups previously underrepresented and discriminated against.
Inclusion and diversity have positives for everyone involved.
