MAINSTREAMING PERSONS WITH DISABILITY AT THE WORKPLACE: AN ASSET OR A LIABILITY?
Disability inflicts about 16% of the population in the world. Disability limits their ability to make use of all their senses or limits locomotion. The constitution provides for all to have access to equal opportunities for education and there after employment. However statistics show that the participation of people with disability at the work place still remains at a low level. The objectives of this review paper were; to establish reasons why employers shun Persons with Disabilities (PWD), analyse the benefits of mainstreaming disability in organisations and to explore strategies for incorporating PWD in organisations. The paper specifically aims to exemplify the rare advantages that having PWD brings to an organization including; incorporation of reliable employees, better corporate image, increased motivation levels, improved accommodation among others.
