Work Trends Surveys on Disability Employment

Tuesday, June 9, 2015

Since its inception, the Heldrich Center has conducted extensive research on the employment of people with disabilities, including a Work Trends survey of employers. The survey revealed employers’ views on people with disabilities in the workplace, the accommodation of these workers, and policies needed to increase workplace accessibility for all workers and job seekers. According to the survey, employers perceived a workplace in which people with disabilities were woefully underrepresented despite the significant number of people with disabilities who can and want to work.
