Supporting those with invisible conditions.

Categories: All, Ethics

Bnode have pledged to lead the way in invisible disability awareness, with support from Crohn’s & Colitis UK and have put their name to this campaign. – Published March ’23

What is The pledge?

Bnode have pledged to lead the way in invisible disability awareness and inclusion, with support from Crohn’s & Colitis UK and have put their name to this campaign, becoming industry leaders in workplace inclusivity. They have pledged to support their employees with invisible conditions, reaping the benefits of a diverse and inclusive workforce.

An estimated 1 in 7 people live with an invisible disability. Bnode are pledging their support to Crohn’s & Colitis UK’s ‘Are you IN?’ Campaign, changing perceptions of disability in the workplace and making their company a more inclusive place for everyone with a long-term condition.

Bnode has pledged to:

● Appoint an ‘invisible condition’ rep as a point of contact to signpost colleagues towards the campaign resources and relevant company policies or employee assistance programmes.

● Train and educate all staff on invisible conditions such as Crohn’s and Colitis.

● Empower managers, HR and people living with invisible conditions with the confidence to talk about invisible conditions by promoting our conversation guides.

● Consider, both currently and as part of a post-COVID-19 climate, offering remote and flexible working hours as a means of not only improving employee wellbeing but also productivity and job satisfaction.

14.1 million people in the UK live with a disability. In the UK, up to 92% of people with a disability in the UK do not use wheelchairs. Invisible conditions can be physical or mental. Epilepsy, cancer, depression, diabetes, autism, chrons disease, ulcerative colitis, dementia, lupus. Can you think of any others? You can have both an invisible and a visible disability. Could the same disability be invisible in one person, and visible in another? People may assume someone is well if their disability or condition is not visible. Is that OK? How would you feel if a colleague told you they had an invisible condition? What questions would you ask them and why?

Together, we can work towards a more inclusive workplace.
