Employers for Change11 March 2021
The aim of Employers for Change is to provide an employer disability information service.
The service will empower employers with all the information and advice needed to hire, employ, manage and retain staff with disabilities.
There are more than 1 billion people in the world living with some form of disability. This corresponds to about 15% of the world's population. (WHO 2020)
In Ireland there are approximately 650,000 people living with a disability. Research shows that people with disabilities have far fewer employment opportunities when compared to their non-disabled peers.
Only 36.5% of people with a disability (aged between 20 and 64) are in employment compared to 72.8% of people without a disability. (CSO 2016)
