Disability, Work and Inclusion in Ireland: Engaging and supporting employers

September 2021

The OECD report ‘Disability, Work and Inclusion in Ireland: Engaging and supporting employers’ provides an independent and internationally recognised diagnosis of key trends and untapped opportunities, as it relates to engaging employers in improving labour market outcomes for persons with disabilities. The report showcases learning from other OECD jurisdictions that could be adapted and applied in an Irish context to enhance employer engagement. The analysis provided can guide future policy development in Ireland, as it sets out a number of recommendations for consideration across various government departments.

The full report is available to read on the OECD Website.

The OECD report ‘Disability, Work and Inclusion in Ireland: Engaging and supporting employers’ is also available as an Executive Summary and in Easy-to-Read form below.

This report, along with the ESRI report ‘Identification of skills gaps among persons with disabilities and their employment prospects’, was launched with an online webinar in September 2021. The agenda for this event included a Ministerial welcome, presentations by the ESRI and the OECD and a panel discussion with representation from the business community, persons with disabilities and the public sector.

The following is the recording of this launch event.
