RIDI candidate survey results

The results of the 2017 RIDI candidate survey were announced at the RIDI conference today. RIDI, in conjunction with inclusive job board, Vercida, surveyed over 200 disabled jobseekers with a variety of physical and non-visible disabilities and long-term conditions.

The survey shows an improvement in the number of people who felt their condition had an impact when job-hunting (75% compared with 85% in the 2015 survey). The results also presented a number of examples of best practice and positive recruitment experiences. There are however still challenges that need to be addressed in the job-hunting process including the application stage which 53% of respondents found challenging.
