Almost half of #Canadians believes a candidate is more likely to be hired if they can hide their #disability from a potential employer, according to a recent BMO study.In fact, according to the survey, that perception is even higher - 55 per cent - among survey respondents who said they have a disability.
The study suggests there is still too much stigma about discussing #disability in the #workplace - on the part of employers, job candidates and employees - and it is getting in the way of businesses hiring more people with #disabilities. If you are a Canadian employer, job candidate or employee let #Springboard know how you feel about this.
