Filling research gaps could help develop more disabilityinclusive workplaces

first_img Source:https://today.oregonstate.edu/news/addressing-research-gaps-could-help-development-disability-inclusive-workplaces Reviewed by James Ives, M.Psych. (Editor)Dec 11 2018Filling key gaps in the research and understanding of the treatment of people with disabilities in the workplace could help improve employee success on the job and develop more disability-inclusive workplaces, a new review of disability research has shown.People with disabilities make up roughly 15 percent of the world’s population but much of the existing research on employment for people with disabilities focuses on employment status, with less attention paid to quality of employment and other context that may influence the work experience of a person with disabilities, said David Baldridge, a professor of management at Oregon State University.”A lot of good work has been done, but the body of knowledge is still very piece-meal,” said Baldridge, who teaches in OSU’s College of Business and is an author of the study. “There are so many different potentially disabling conditions and work contexts that it is difficult to obtain data and generalize from one condition to the next.”The findings were published recently in the journal Human Resource Management. The lead author is Joy Beatty of the University of Michigan – Dearborn. Co-authors are Stephan Boehm of the University of St. Gallen, Mukta Kulkarni of the Indian Institute of Management -Bangalore, and Adrienne Colella of Tulane University.Beatty, Baldridge and their co-authors reviewed 88 research studies on the treatment of people with disabilities in the workplace and identified a number of gaps in the research that could help support the development of more inclusive workplaces and improve work opportunities for people with disabilities.Among the gaps: Clear definitions of disability. Researchers often use the term ‘person with disability’ differently and are sometimes unclear as to which group or groups their findings are applicable. Revisiting the meaning of career success. While success is often linked to promotions, people with disabilities may instead decline promotions or seek job duty modifications, employment security, work-life balance, etc. Adopting new ways to accurately measure career success can improve understanding of inclusive human resources policies. Over-reliance on limited existing data. Data on people with disabilities in the workplace can be difficult to obtain, so the available data is limited, leading to over-reliance on a few large government data sources. Lack of national context in current research, with a disproportionate focus on U.S. populations. The experience of a person with disabilities in the United States is likely to be different than that of a person living in China or India, but much of the existing research is focused on the U.S. Disability overshadows other aspects of a person’s identity. Deeper examination of individual differences and identities outside the disability itself is needed.center_img Related StoriesTAU’s new Translational Medical Research Center acquires MILabs’ VECTor PET/SPECT/CTOlympus Europe and Cytosurge join hands to accelerate drug development, single cell researchSchwann cells capable of generating protective myelin over nerves finds research”Employers may treat disability as a ‘master status,’ overshadowing other aspects of identity that contribute to diversity,” Beatty said. “Disability identities coexist with other identities, creating a tapestry of gender, age, race, sexual orientation and religious affiliation. Recognizing this tapestry and incorporating a more complex model of identity supports the development of more inclusive organizations.”As people live longer and work later in life, the proportion of people living with a disability is expected to grow exponentially, making disability employment issues relevant to a much larger group of workers and employers, Baldridge said.”As work becomes more specialized, one issue for consideration should be to focus on what people can do and not what they can’t do,” he said. “Gains in specialized technology can help increase the impact of a person’s ability or reduce the impact of their disability.”Baldridge is already putting findings from this study into action. He’s currently working on a project that examines employee disability through lenses of isolation and integration to see if working in one condition has consequences for an employee’s career. He’s also looking at the connections between disability, education level and earnings to see how those three factors might relate.”That’s an example of going beyond just a person’s employment status and looking more at the quality of their employment,” he said.last_img read more

Nosay Nissan had tech that drove Fiat ChryslerRenault idea

first_imgNissan has long resisted pressures from Renault for a full merger, and Japanese media reported that Renault had likely hoped its lobbying power would be boosted, if it had merged with Fiat Chrysler.But the collapse of the talks with Fiat Chrysler might mean Renault would merely focus even more on a merger with Nissan, the Asahi newspaper said Friday.Nissan Chief Executive Hiroto Saikawa told reporters late Thursday that he wanted time to find out what the Fiat Chrylser-Renault merger might mean for Nissan, calling it “moving to the next stage.” He reiterated his reservations about a full merger with Renault, stressing Nissan must turn its business around first.Fiat Chrysler cited “political conditions in France” for withdrawing its offer to Renault.The French government said it had placed four conditions on the deal, and getting support from Nissan was the condition that wasn’t met.The other conditions were to preserve French jobs and factories, respect the governance balance between Renault and Fiat Chrysler, and ensure participation in an electric battery initiative with Germany.Michelle Krebs, executive analyst at Autotrader in Detroit, acknowledged the proposed giant alliance had been complex.”No one ever expected it to be a cake walk to negotiate or execute,” she said. “The only surprise is that it ended so soon.” While Nissan Motor Co. had a weaker bargaining position from the start, with its financial performance crumbling after the arrest last year of its star executive Carlos Ghosn, it still had as its crown jewel the technology of electric vehicles and hybrids that Fiat Chrysler wanted.The board of Renault, meeting Thursday, didn’t get as far as voting on the proposal, announced last week, which would have created the world’s third biggest automaker, trailing only Volkswagen AG of Germany and Japan’s Toyota Motor Corp.When the French government, Renault’s top shareholder with a 15% stake, asked for more time to convince Nissan, Fiat Chrysler Chairman John Elkann abruptly withdrew the offer.Although analysts say reviving the talks isn’t out of the question, they say trust among the players appears to have been broken.”The other companies made the mistake of underestimating Nissan’s determination to say, ‘No,’ ” said Katsuya Takuechi, senior analyst at Mitsubishi UFJ Morgan Stanley Securities in Tokyo.Renault and Fiat Chrylser highlighted possible synergies that come from sharing parts and research costs as the benefits of the merger. But what Fiat Chrysler lacks and really wanted was what’s called in the industry “electrification technology,” Takeuchi said.With emissions regulations getting stricter around the world, having such technology is crucial.Yokohama-based Nissan makes the world’s best-selling electric car Leaf.Its Note, an electric car equipped with a small gas engine to charge its battery, was Japan’s No. 1 selling car for the fiscal year through March, the first time in 50 years that a Nissan model beat Toyota and Honda Motor Co. for that title.Nissan is also a leader in autonomous-driving technology, another area all the automakers are trying to innovate.

Indias diversity should not be a reason for discord says RSS chief

first_img COMMENT SHARE SHARE SHARE EMAIL Published on India’s diversity must be respected, celebrated and it should not be a reason for any discord in society, Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) chief Mohan Bhagwat said Monday, launching an unprecedented outreach to make the organisation better understood.On the first day of the three-day conclave “Bhavishya Ka Bharat — A RSS Perspective”, he elaborated on evolution of the RSS, which he said cannot be compared to any other organisation.Almost all major opposition parties gave the conclave a miss though the RSS had invited them. However, many leaders of the ruling BJP were present, as were many Bollywood actors, artists and academicians.“India is a country full of diversity and it must be respected and celebrated,” he said, adding that it should not become a reason for “discord” in the society. The outreach comes at a time when the Congress-led opposition has been ramping up attacks on the RSS, accusing it of promoting divisive ideology and attacking minorities.In his around 80-minute speech, Bhagwat spoke on a variety of issues, including the freedom movement, and acknowledged the role of the Congress, which has been among the organisation’s biggest critics.center_img COMMENTS RSS chief Mohan Bhagwat speaks at the event titled “Future of Bharat: An RSS perspective” in New Delhi, on Monday, Sept. 17, 2018.   –  PTI September 17, 2018last_img read more
