The Great Big Workplace Adjustments Survey
This research report explores the feedback from over 1,200 respondents taking part in Business Disability Forum’s survey in 2019 about their experience of workplace adjustments in their organisations. It draws together the evidence of how effective the provision is and perceptions of both employers and employees about how the adjustments provided work and opportunities for employees with disabilities and long-term conditions.
With the population aging and the number of people living with a disability increasing each year, it is also about reflecting and understanding the needs of a changing workforce. This report is very timely; as we adapt to life and work during Covid-19 there is a unique opportunity to rethink our attitudes and approaches to adjustments – after all, we are all working with adjustments now – and to ensure there is a lasting legacy of acceptance of different ways of working. The findings in this report will influence the advice we give to businesses and Government. We hope it will also help shape a more inclusive and supportive workplace culture for everyone.
We would like to thank everyone who has given their time to contribute to this important piece of research and to thank our long-standing friend and partner Microlink for their generous support.
