Research Study: Universal Design Practices to Enhance Work Outcomes

Researchers are recruiting employees with mobility disabilities for a series of online surveys about how workplace design and the work environment affect an employee's ability to take part in work activities. Participants must be at least 18 years of age and currently employed at least 20 hours per week in a physical work setting. Only 1-2 employees per worksite will be enrolled and priority will be given to those who work outside of the rehabilitation services/disability advocacy fields. Participants will complete three online surveys and will be compensated for their time.
