A new report looking at federal agencies’ hiring, retaining and effective management of employees with disabilities finds shortfalls and key areas for improvement.
The Alexandria, Va.-based Telework Exchange released its report, “Unnecessary Barriers,” March 29, 2010. The findings are from an online survey conducted Jan. 25-Feb. 5, 2010, with 513 federal government employees involved in hiring or managing employees. Among respondents, 69 percent work in federal civilian agencies and 31 percent work in Department of Defense agencies.
While 71 percent of federal employees think that their agency is committed to hiring employees with disabilities, only half say their agency is equipped to make good on its commitment. Among the findings:
Kareem Dale, special assistant to the president for disability policy, was scheduled to discuss the findings April 8, 2010, at a Spring Telework Exchange Town Hall Meeting.
Telework Exchange recommends securing management’s commitment to workers with disabilities and monitoring that progress; training hiring and program managers on recruiting, managing and retaining workers with disabilities; educating managers on key mandates and advocating for equal opportunity; and offering improved physical access, communications and technical accommodations.
