Study reveals disability a focus among corporates in Asia-Pacific

D.N.I.S. News Network, India: A recent study by Mercer says that disability is second on the list of focus areas in the corporate sector in India. While 91 percent companies said that gender is their focus, disability came second with 39 percent. The study was conducted among 31 companies across Asia-Pacific.

Though it seems to be a good development for the disability sector, scenario on the ground reflects another reality. Employment for people with disabilities in the private sector is less than 1 percent. Other than a handful of companies which have genuinely shown an interest in disability, it still is not on the agenda of most corporates in India.
