The Small Employer – Support

The Small Employer Offer is a new and unique package of employment support for both employers and employees. It recognises the need to support small employers in a proactive and positive way and my role is to engage with Small Employers throughout Dorset and parts of Hampshire. I can do this by:

  • Dispelling myths around employing/retaining someone with a health condition or disability – and highlighting the benefits of employing/retaining someone with a disability or health condition
  • Providing advice on access issues and adaptations in the work place
  • Raising awareness of Access to Work – including their mental health support service
  • Highlighting In-Work Support available to employers and employees – helping to develop a programme of IWS, incorporating local provision and Community Partners
  • Being available to support employers, answering queries and resolving issues
