Business Disability Forum have published the results of ‘The Great Big Workplace Adjustments Survey’ looking at the experiences of individuals with disabilities and workplace adjustments. 73% of the 1,200 people surveyed felt adjustments had made a positive difference, but only 19% felt adjustments had helped to remove all barriers at work. Timing wise, 50% had waited less than three months for adjustments to be put in place; 20% had waited between three and six months; and almost three in ten (27%) were waiting more than 6 months for their adjustments to be made, of which, 8% per cent had been waiting over two years.
