  2. NDA commissioned research • NDA’s recently published research report “Effective Leadership and Organisational Culture for the Recruitment and Retention of People with Disabilities in the Irish Public Sector” • The Disability Act 2005 places new obligations on public bodies to promote and support the employment of people with disabilities. • This research was commissioned to support public bodies in achieving this goal. • Report prepared for NDA by Juliette Alban-Metcalfe, Real World Group

  3. Report sections • Employment context • Becoming committed • Preparing the organisation • Recruiting • Induction, training and support • Leadership style/career development – retention • Equality/diversity culture – retention • References

  5. 2. Becoming committed • Codes of Practice, policies, guidelines • Visible commitment from senior managers is critical • Disability awareness training for all staff

  6. 3. Preparing the organisation • Address negative attitudes • Culture of flexibility and accommodation • Make the organisation attractive

  7. 4. Recruiting • Advertisements • Interview/Chair/Assessors • Focus on what a person could do • Partnering with other organisations

  8. 5. Induction, training and support • Effective induction period is crucial • Accessibility of, and encouragement to take up, training • ‘Buddy’, ‘pairing’, network groups

  9. 6. Leadership style/career development • Relationship with line manager • Attribution theory • ‘In-group’ and ‘out-group’ status • Career development culture

  10. 7. Equality/diversity culture • A culture where adjustments are “no big deal” • A culture where non-traditional approaches are welcome • A culture of communication • A culture of disability prevention and return-to-work
