SHRM Survey

Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM) Survey

This project presents the findings and implications of data gathered from over 675 human resource (HR) professionals from the membership of the Society of Human Resource Management (SHRM). This employer survey measured the level of implementation and effectiveness of a wide variety of disability inclusive practices and policies and examined perceived barriers to the employment of persons with disabilities

The Conference Board

The Conference Board Employer Working Groups

Employers' perceptions are critical input to increasing understanding of how to improve employment outcomes for people with disabilities. A series of six focus groups of employer representatives from memberships of The Conference Board and the Center for Advanced Human Resource Studies at Cornell University were conducted to identify key issues of concern, policies and practices seen as currently effective, as well as emerging issues, as well as to seek input in shaping the Employer Practices RRTC research agenda, and review preliminary findings to inform subsequent analyses. Results highlights of these employer working groups are presented, and select employer representatives serving as discussants on this session's panel discussed the challenges and opportunities they face in working to recruit, retain and advance people with disabilities.


Center for Advanced Human Resource Studies Employer Working Groups

This project builds on previous project efforts to gain "top of the house"strategic perspectives from corporate HR. With the 60 CAHRS member companies and access to top-level HR executives this project aims to identify HR/employer metrics to assess employer practice and policy impacts.
