Inclusion of People with Disabilities within Enterprises in Times of Digitization

Christoph Metzler / Anika Jansen / Andrea Kurtenacker

Digitization has a positive influence on the inclusion of people with disabilities in German companies. Companies that already rely heavily on digitization today employ more people with disabilities than companies that currently do not have any reference to digitization.

The Employment Situation for People with Disabilities

Christoph Metzler / Dirk Werner

Though there is still room for improvement, the situation on the German labour market for people with severe disabilities is generally good. While in 2013 only 42.8 per cent of 25- to 64-year-olds were employed, 45.6 per cent did not wish to work and only 2.8 per cent were officially unemployed.

Labour Market Results and the Career Goals of Generation Y compared with those of Generation X

Christoph Metzler / Dirk Werner / Michael Zibrowius

In the last few years young people born between 1980 to 1995, frequently referred to in the media as Generation Y or Millennials, have been joining the workforce in increasing num-bers. Some observers assume that they have other career goals and a different vision than the preceding cohort and consequently advise companies wishing to remain attractive to these young skilled workers to adapt their working conditions accordingly. However, a comparison based on the Socio-Economic Panel of this Generation Y with their predecessors in Generation X ( those born between 1965 to 1979) finds that when socio-demographic factors, economic trends and the nature of their work are taken into account there are no unambiguous signs of different perceptions or attitudes. The probable reason for the observable differences proves rather to be an increase in the proportion of women in the workforce combined with an increase in part-time employment. This suggests that HR managers should be responding more to general trends and less to the supposed peculi-arities of a new generation of young employees.
