Employers’ attitude, intention, skills and barriers in relation to employment of vulnerable workers
Little is known why some organizations employ vulnerable workers and others do not. Results show that inclusive organizations had less barriers reflected by better financial results, more employment opportunities and more appropriate work tasks.
Tis are part of the results from research in which, among others, our colleague, prof.dr. Roland Blonk explored the relationships between the attitude, intention, skills and barriers of employers and employment of vulnerable workers.
The research included 5,601 inclusive organizations (≥1% of employees had a disability, was long-term unemployed or a school dropout) and 6,236 non-inclusive organizations of the Netherlands Employers Work Survey 2014–2019.
This research, titled: ‘Employers’ attitude, intention, skills and barriers in relation to employment of vulnerable workers.’ is published this August in the journal Work.
