The right to work for men and women with disabilities - successful collaboration between employers and support systems using the workplace as an arena for work inclusion

Project description

Studying ways to shrink the disability employment gap

Approximately one in six people in the EU aged 15 and over lives with some kind of disability. Despite overall improvements in the employment situation, people with disabilities continue to struggle to find employment. While collaboration between employers and the support system is crucial when using the workplace as an arena for work inclusion, there is a lack of research on employer-support system relations. The EU-funded WORK.INC project will fill this knowledge gap by using theoretical frameworks from the field of sociology and psychology. It will draw from successful collaboration examples, and the results from observation/interview studies in Norway and Sweden and insights from a literature review will inform support-side approaches and facilitate work inclusion.
