HANDBOOK: Employing the Disabled

Posted on 29 April 2008. Filed under: Announcements, Employment, Inclusion, Resources | Tags: , , , , , , , , , , , |

The following email was recently circulated by Shivani Gupta, Director of AccessAbility, an organization in India that specializes in issues related to universal design and employment for people with disabilities.

Hi All,

Greetings from AccessAbility!

Over the last few years, the issue of employment of persons with disabilities in the private sector has been on top of many minds, but it has mostly been perceived as a social issue needing a Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) approach instead of being looked upon as a business case needing the regular Human Resources (HR) approach. With our association with the Indian Tobacco Company (ITC)-Welcomgroup as access consultants, we were able to closely observe its evolution in employment of persons with disabilities, from being a CSR concern to an HR practice and have tried to document (in the form of a handbook) the learning that came out of it.

The handbook, “Employing the Disabled” is a step by step guide to demystify the perceived complexities around employing persons with disabilities, and can be downloaded in PDF format at http://www.accessability.co.in/files/Employing-the-Disabled.pdf (369 Kb).

I hope you find the handbook useful and will really appreciate if you can provide your feedback on how this handbook can be improved further.

Warm Regards,
Shivani Gupta
Director
