Study calculated the value of disclosing a disability
The Center for Talent Innovation’s Disabilities and Inclusion study revealed that 30% of the professional workforce fits the current federal definition of having a disability. However, not all of these employees with disabilities feel comfortable acknowledging their disability on a self-identification survey.
The survey discovered that of the employees with disabilities, 24% disclosed it to their team, 21% disclosed it to human resources and only 4% revealed it to clients.
