Understand the important role feedback plays in helping all employees advance
Organizations must provide feedback to all of their employees, including those with disabilities, not only when things are going well, but also when there are performance issues. Performance management is an important component of development and advancement at work. It lets employees know what they are doing well and where they need to make improvement. Too often, people with disabilities are not given the benefit of feedback, because managers are worried about raising thorny disability issues. This page explores the intersection of performance management and disability.
