28 mins by Forethought |

We sat down with Islay Rackham, Business Development Manager at Kilmarnock Enterprises to discuss the company’s unique approach to workplace community. Kilmarnock employs over 80 intellectually disabled individuals in various departments across their impressive factory. Going strong for sixty or so years, Kilmarnock just recently transitioned from a charity to social enterprise. Kilmarnock interacts with its employees first and foremost as people (rather than workers) - a philosophy that enables a fantastic workplace culture. Islay talked us through how Kilmarnock culture is displayed in and out of the workplace, and shed light on the role disabled individuals have in bringing diversity to the wider community.
