Opportunities & Obstacles: Life On and Off the Job for Employees with Disabilities, was released in April by the Families and Work Institute. Two percent of the respondents self-identified as employees working with vision loss. Key findings from the report were that while employees with disabilities report a strong degree of job satisfaction and engagement, they are more likely to experience disconnectedness in the workplace and a greater degree of job insecurity than the general workforce.
