|Employers’ lessons learned in hiring, retaining and advancing employees with disabilities||1000.02 KB|
Research for this report included a review of publicly available literature, qualitative and quantitative data collection from public governmental and employer sites, and an environmental scan of Canadian employer initiatives on inclusion and accessibility and the resources that support them.
The report reflects qualitative input from the participants of the Access Ability roundtable series, during which PPF gathered candid observations from diverse representatives from medium and large employers (50 employees or more) across Canada and across sectors about their efforts to improve inclusion of employees with disabilities. Participants included executives and leaders from human resources, equity, diversity and inclusion initiatives and employees with disabilities across these roles. (More details about roundtable participants can be found in the Appendix of this report.) These methods represent a thorough qualitative review of a limited scope of employers. This is by no means an exhaustive review, but it provides important initial insights.
