In a new report, The Hartford and disability experts at the University of Kansas found that 80 percent of people with disabilities achieved their career goals at an acceptable level or higher when they had individualized support from employers. As part of a two-year research partnership, the insurer and the university released a white paper that outlines the critical nature of a strong partnership between a supportive employer and a motivated employee with a disability. Researchers identified three major factors for the partnership: open dialogue between a motivated employee and a supportive employer, shared goal of return to work, and individualized and specific accommodations for the employee.
