When the United Nations General Assembly passed resolution 47/3 in 1992, it agreed that everyone should recognise the International Day of Persons With Disabilities (IDPWD) every year.
In all areas of society and development, the General Assembly wants to protect the rights and wellbeing of people with disabilities. It also wants to make people aware of how people with disabilities are affected by politics, social, economic, and cultural life.
People with disabilities have been part of the United Nations’ work on disability for a long time. The Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities, which came into effect in 2006, has helped ensure that people with disabilities have the same rights and opportunities as everyone else. This includes the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development and other international development frameworks, like the Sendai Framework for Disaster Risk Reduction and the Charter on Inclusion of Persons with Disabilities in Humanitarian Action.
On Tuesday 3rd December 2021, Auctus Management Group Ltd and its subsidiary businesses RSS Infrastructure Ltd and INFRA Skills Ltd showed their support for IDPWD 2021 in their offices across the UK. All employees were able to share disability-related facts, figures, and educational materials and offer advice and guidance to any staff member who needed it.
Because we are a Disability Confident Leader and have won the ENEI TIDE Silver Award, we are at the forefront of getting new and talented people into the rail and civils industries.
As the industry grows and the workforce ages, the sector needs businesses and people who work hard to identify new employees who can do the job well. Auctus Management Group is at the heart of this change. All of the group’s businesses want to ensure that new strategies are incorporated into their daily operations, that everyone is treated with respect, and that everyone has the same opportunities.
