DISABILITY AND THE PHYSICAL WORK ENVIRONMENT

This research focuses on the link between the physical work environment and the career and work experiences of employees with disabilities. The degree to which a physical work environment is designed in an accessible and inclusive way, will have an important impact on whether employees with disabilities will be able to optimally function and feel included at work. The focus of this research is both on exposing the way the physical work environment can pose barriers for individuals with disabilities, and on reflecting on ways in which the physical environment can contribute to more inclusive workplaces.
