Another fine study from Transgen in to the attitudes and beliefs of job Development professionals has implications for your business and staff training and development. They found that attitudes and values varied according to how long someone had been in the job. In simple terms they found that those with five or more years of experience viewed hiring as a employer bottom line exercise, whilst those with less saw the process of one of selling the idea of hiring someone with a disability to the employer.
How does that gel with your experience? For me it clearly illustrates the point I’ve been making that using disability stats when talking with employers is interesting but ultimately pointless.
Food for thought
