It is estimated that over one billion people in the world suffer from a disability and that of this one billion, between 110 and 190 million have difficulty in functioning. The rate of disability continues to increase due to ageing population and an increase in chronic health conditions. While many persons with disabilities are of working age and available for work, the figures for persons with disabilities that are unemployed are incredibly high.
This infographic from Burning Nights aims to increase awareness on the plight faced by persons with disabilities. We examine the reasonable adjustments that may be necessary in the place of employment, while also focusing on the benefits that can be attained for both the employer and employee from hiring people with disabilities.
