Publications

Business Disability Forum’s Line manager guides have been updated for 2017. These guides now reflect the current use of language around disability best practice,  they include up to date cultural references, more recent appendices and best practice case study examples. 

The briefings, toolkits and line manager guides cover every aspect of bringing organisations and disabled people together from recruitment and retention to reasonable adjustments and Disabled Employee Networks. They provide practical advice to help organisations recruit and retain disabled people and serve disabled customers.
