Employers Don’t Understand the Work People with Disabilities Can Do, SHRM Research Finds

  • The USA is struggling to fill millions of jobs, but people with disabilities are often overlooked. 51-61% of HR professionals and managers have had no disability inclusion training, and 13-32% of managers say they’d feel uncomfortable working with colleagues with disabilities. However, 92% of managers (and 97% of HR professionals) who have employees who have a disability said those individuals perform the same or better than their peers.
