‘Most IT companies in city not disabled-friendly’, says study

HYDERABAD:  In the wake of an announcement made by the State government that it would set up a separate IT park for persons with disabilities (PWDs), a study published recently has highlighted the lack of PWD-friendly atmosphere in IT/ITES companies in the city, a fact accepted both by PWD employees and their employers as well.
The study, ‘Factors influencing employment and employability for persons with disability: Insights from a City in South India’ conducted by researchers at the city-based South Asia Centre for Disability Inclusive Development  and Research (SACDIR) involved a survey through a semi-structured  questionnaire given to 147 PWD employees and 53 employers of six IT/ITeS companies in Hyderabad. It was published this month in the Indian Journal of Occupational & Environmental Medicine .
