Who Should Use BenchmarkABILITY®- Singapore?
The surveys in BenchmarkABILITY®- Singapore can be completed by a single individual, or by a team of individuals. In larger organizations, the surveys may be divided between Human Resources, Diversity and Inclusion, Recruitment, and Compensation personnel. In smaller organizations a lead Human Resources representative could compete all of the surveys.
It is also possible to use the surveys to assess the knowledge of frontline managers and supervisors about internal policies and practices related to disability. By requesting that managers take the surveys and by reviewing the results, it may be possible to discover where training and information efforts should be concentrated across the enterprise.
What type of reports can I create?
Individual reports will include your survey responses, as well as explanations of why certain practices are effective in improving your organization’s approach to disability inclusion.
Each report can be printed or shared electronically to assist in the strategic planning around disability inclusion in the workplace.
