Employing people with disability comes with many advantages

You might be surprised to know that just under one in five people in the UK have a limiting long-term illness, impairment, or disability, so it is likely that you already have someone with a disability in your team 1. This might be a physical disability, intellectual disability, long-term illness, or a mental health condition. In fact, it’s likely you have someone with a disability working for you right now.

Research2 shows that there are many benefits to employing people with a disability, including:

  • People with a disability take fewer days off
  • People with disability have fewer H&S problems
  • People with a disability stay with their employers longer than other staff


It’s all about what people can do. Like anyone, people with disability bring skills, experience, and education. The key is finding the right job fit.
