About the RIDI Awards

The recruitment industry's only disability awards


If you’re involved in the Recruitment Industry Disability Initiative (RIDI) you know that actions really do speak louder than words. You’re already part of a unique initiative to drive change in recruitment and remove the barriers faced by the millions of disabled people who are entering or progressing through the job market. What you do matters to millions of people!

  • Our joint initiative started 5 years ago and last year we came together for the first time to celebrate progress on disability in recruitment at a spectacular awards ceremony.


    The first ever awards, sponsored by E.ON, Eversheds & the Clear Company, were announced on 14 May, 2014 in Evershed's central London offices. The preliminary results of the 'Actions Speak Louder than Words' survey were also announced on the night, to read more please download our Survey Summary

    The RIDI Awards are now becoming a regular fixture on the recruitment industry calendar. Make sure you are prepared for this year, entries close on 19 September - plenty of time to get your case studies written up. RIDI Award winners will be announced on 3 November in London. So, if you are really proud of your work on disability, don't keep quiet about it. There are lots of different categories up for grabs.

    Collaboration, communication & confidence! Celebrate success, recognise hard work and take part!
