We are interviewing people who are employers or managers of a person(s) with a physical disability.  This employee with a physical disability should be currently employed with you in a remunerative position that allows them to be financially independent.  Through these discussions, we hope to gain insights from your experience.  Participants may include owner-operators of businesses, chief operating officers, vice presidents, management personnel, human resources personnel or anyone responsible for the hiring or management of individuals with disabilities.  Our aim is to learn from the lived experiences of employers so that we can distill commonalities, identify themes, and gather anecdotes of workplace successes and challenges.  By exploring the insights and experiences of employers, we hope to improve the recruitment and retention of persons with disabilities, to advise on policies around the hiring of people with disabilities, and to promote more inclusion in the workforce overall.
