China has adopted a "carrot and stick" approach to disability in the workplace—incentivizing companies to employ people with disabilities and fining those who don’t. The simplistic national employment quota fails to address the complexities MNCs face in recruiting, training, and retaining employees with disabilities.
To further understanding of workforce inclusion of persons with disabilities in China, and to identify practical ways forward for employers, The Conference Board China Center and the K. Lisa Yang and Hock E. Tan Institute on Employment and Disability (YTI) at Cornell University’s ILR School partnered to explore how companies can tap the talent pool of people with disabilities and improve their employment outcomes.
Disability in the Workplace in China: Situation Assessment draws from the broader research findings and provides business practitioners with a detailed overview of the current situation, challenges, and root causes of employment barriers for persons with disabilities in China.
