Let your voice be heard! Survey about Job Accommodations

Please share this information with anyone interested in the topic of job accommodations.

Dear Colleague

Research finds that people with and without disabilities request and benefit from workplace accommodations.

What do you think the Return On Investment is for your company’s flexibility? Do you need data to support your workplace flexibility? How do you ensure support for policies and programs that support workers during tough economic times?

Companies need to see data to support their workplace flexibility. The Burton Blatt Institute at Syracuse University is conducting a study of workplace accommodation policies and practices, the long-term effectiveness of workplace accommodations, and the costs and benefits of accommodations over the long-term.

The benefit of this research is that you will be helping us to assess the costs, benefits, and utility of workplace accommodations and understand what organizational policies, practices, and cultures lead to successful use of accommodations.

If you are a person who has ever asked for an accommodation or for flexibility in your schedule or work situation, we want to hear about your experiences and the costs and benefits of your accommodations!

If you implemented accommodations for your employees – we want to hear from you! We’re compiling data to better estimate the total costs and benefits of workplace flexibility.
