Guide Dogs Says Businesses Should Hire People With Vision Impairment
Guide Dogs for the Blind are urging people who own business to open their eyes to the benefits of employing someone who is vision impaired or blind. This follows from the results of an online poll conducted by the organisation which suggests that 37% of the vision impaired or blind that are of working age are currently unemployed, with 91% saying they wanted a job. This means there is a vast untapped workforce that is not being utilised.
As a result Guide Dogs has launched its ‘Have cane, am able to work’ employer awareness campaign. The campaign has the simple objective of trying to increase the number of people that are either vision impaired or blind that are part of the workforce.
