The article reports that disability charity Scope has met its target to recruit 20 per cent disabled staff by the end of 2007, up from 4 per cent in 2004. Scope has doubled the proportion of disabled people typically employed in a workplace (one in 10). Scope, whose workforce is 3,300 strong, aimed for 20 per cent because it reflected the overall number of disabled people of working age. Scope implemented a number of initiatives to make its workplace culture attractive to disabled people, including awareness training for managers.
