The goal of this research study was to examine the strategies and supports that are most effective for assisting persons with disabilities to maintain employment and advance their careers. To that end, the present study was designed to better understand the current status of demand-side activities used by progressive employers to promote the general retention of their workforce, and how these practices and strategies can be optimized to include people with disabilities.
This paper presents the preliminary, descriptive findings from a survey designed to assess these practices that was conducted with employer members of the Disability Management Employer Coalition (DMEC) by the Rehabilitation Research and Training Center of Virginia Commonwealth University, in collaboration with DMEC.
