Business Disability Forum share their recommendations for what employers can do to improve the experience of disabled employees. Their Great Big Workplace Adjustments Survey 2023 sponsored by Microlink, explores the process, experience and impact of workplace adjustments, and updates their 2019 research.
Disabled employees continue to struggle at work due to both individual barriers in their job and wider barriers in their workplace environment and working culture. Conversations about having a disability between employees and managers and with the wider team, and the difficulty in getting adjustments, remain huge barriers. In addition, both employees and managers said that senior leaders were not always calling out poor behaviours, microaggressions, and insensitive comments even when they witnessed these behaviours themselves.
