“With findings like these, there is an onus on all individuals in any given workplace – business owners, leaders, managers and employees – to check their biases at the door and pave the way for more inclusive and accessible workplaces. Businesses can start by reviewing and reworking recruitment practices, partnering with organizations that connect people with disabilities to job opportunities, and educating and training managers to feel confident discussing what their employees with visible or non-visible disabilities may need to enable their success,” said Ms. Kunkel.
