There are strong arguments for increasing the employment of disabled people quite apart from issues of fairness and disabled people’s rights under the law. For example, research has shown that…
✓FACT: Organisations that employ disabled people tend to be better employers for everyone: working conditions are better and everyone who works there tends to be happier, so they work harder and better.
✓FACT: Disabled people can bring well-developed creative problem-solving skills to their job. This helps everyone in that organisation.
✓FACT: Many disabled people take less time off sick than non disabled people.
✓FACT: Organisations who want to employ disabled people have more people to choose from when they’re looking for new employees so they’ve got a better chance of getting the right person for the job.
