About Purple Tuesday

Purple Tuesday is an international call to action focused on changing the candidate experience for disabled people. It calls on organisations from all sectors and sizes, to take decisive practical actions to meet the needs of stakeholders within their businesses.

How can you make a difference?

  • Organisations can contact Purple for advice on how they can improve their approach to disabled consumers. Example changes include:
  • Conducting an online audit of your website to improve accessibility
  • Training staff to know and understand how to communicate effectively with disabled candidates
  • Conducting an on-site audit to ensure the physical space is suitable for every employee to get around the area easily
  • Improving wayfare signage around facilities
  • Introducing quiet hours on a regular basis to help people who struggle with music, tannoys and noise.
