Business as unusual: Making workplaces inclusive of people with disabilities

The inclusion of people with disabilities in the workplace is no longer absent from the business agenda. Nonetheless, managers still struggle in implementing inclusion strategies effectively. Based on examples from 15 multinational companies, employers’ organizations and business networks, this publication presents key factors leading to the successful inclusion of people with disabilities in the workplace. Divided into two main sections – the why and the how, it provides solutions and ideas on how to improve and expand existing practices, as well as guidance to those who wish to get started and take active part in transforming what it is still perceived as unusual into a natural component of the work environment.
