The Employer Assistance and Resource Network on Disability Inclusion (EARN), in collaboration with the National Industry Liaison Group (NILG), is pleased to share a new guide that offers strategies employers can use to encourage their employees with disabilities to self-identify. Engaging Employees to Measure Success: Innovative Approaches to Encouraging Self-Identification of Disability provides ideas for how to counter what research shows to be the main barriers to self-identification.
This new guide is a valuable resource for businesses of all sizes interested in assessing their progress toward disability inclusion goals. Self-identification is about more than reaching certain numbers, however. Done right, the very act of inviting applicants and employees to self-identify helps convey that a company intends to not just express a commitment to an inclusive workforce, but also deliver on it.
