About this book

Developing better employment and management practices for a diverse workplace is quickly becoming a major concern amongst most modern organisations; however, a lack of research into good practices has a limiting effect. Dealing specifically with disabilities, this pioneering work is based on international research spanning several European countries to demonstrate best practice. Aiming to fill a gap in knowledge, the authors offer interdisciplinary insights into managing diversity in the workplace, taking into account various social and cultural contexts. Providing analysis and recommendations for adapting organisational practices to different workplace settings, this Palgrave Pivot is a vital read for scholars of HRM and diversity management, as well as policy-makers and practitioners.

Reviews

“There are few studies on employment practices related to the very specific category of people with disabilities. Even rarer are studies into policies on the employment of people with disabilities. This book is an important contribution to disability studies.” (Barbara Gąciarz, Professor, AGH University of Science and Technology, Poland )

“This book deals with the very important and crucial issue of the social, cultural and economic inclusion of people with disabilities, and emphasises their current situation in the labour market.” (Elżbieta Zakrzewska-Manterys, Professor, University of Warsaw, Poland)

“An indisputable asset of this book is its international and interdisciplinary nature, as well as its combination of academic knowledge with practice.” (Jakub Niedbalski, University of Lodz, Poland)
