Visibly Better Employer is an RNIB programme for employers, backed by major organisations including Tesco and HM Revenue and Customs, which helps them become better and more inclusive for people with sight loss.
When an organisation signs up for the Visibly Better Employer quality standard, we help them to put in place practices which will enable them to become an inclusive employer for blind and partially sighted people.
RNIB has a team of specialists in employment and accessible working practices who support employers to improve their recruitment and retention practices for both new and existing staff who have sight loss. We work with the employer to consider how jobs are advertised, the application and interview process, IT systems and reasonable adjustments, promotion opportunities and organisation wide staff knowledge about sight loss.
To achieve the Visibly Better Employer quality standard an organisation must make any accessibility changes suggested by RNIB and prove its committment to becoming an inclusive employer for blind and partially sighted people.
If you apply for a position with an employer which has achieved the RNIB Visibly Better Employer quality standard, you can be confident that the recruitment process will be fair and inclusive. If you get a job with a Visibly Better Employer, it will understand that reasonable adjustments might be needed and your colleagues should have a good basic understanding of sight loss so you can fit smoothly into your new role.
