Inclusion & Diversity
Enabling change for persons with disabilities
All of our people play a part in delivering the promise of technology and human ingenuity. That’s why we create an inclusive and accessible workplace for everyone to thrive.
Our new global research finds companies that fully include employees with disabilities grow faster than their peers. Yet, employees with disabilities around the world told us that they often feel excluded and unsupported. It’s no wonder that 77% of employees and 80% of leaders with disabilities choose not to be transparent about their disability at work.
What can be done? In order for employees with disabilities to feel their full potential can be reached, the workplace culture must change – but first leaders must see the need. More than 60% of leaders believe their companies are supportive, but only 20% of employees with a disability feel the organization is fully committed to this support.
We uncovered eight important factors, from visible role models to flexible work, that leaders can consider right now to build more inclusive cultures for all employees to unlock their – and the company’s – full potential.

Tips on working with persons with disabilities
We know that behind every great change is a great person. And that the more inclusive an organization is, the more successful it becomes.
That’s why we are constantly enabling change so everyone can contribute equally. Our people with disabilities have access to the latest technology, tools and training to create a barrier-free workplace, supported by over 36,000 Persons with Disabilities Champions in 52 countries.
We believe in the power of inclusion: to change lives, to create better results… and to deliver on the promise of technology and human ingenuity.
