Vision Australia's Employer Attitudes Survey 2016

In May 2016, Vision Australia’s Advocacy and Engagement department distributed an employer attitudes survey to a cross section of Australian businesses, including Australian Network on Disability (AND) members..

The purpose of the survey was to examine employer attitudes to recruiting people who are blind or have low vision and to inform Vision Australia’s ongoing work to improve the 58% unemployment rate in our community (Vision Australia Employment Report 2012).

This 14 question survey was sent to employers through Vision Australia’s employer data base, through employer contacts provided by staff, and through AND’s newsletter, social media channels and email distribution list.
