Phase 1 of the EARN Rapid Cycle Research (RCR) process asked employers about current approaches to online outreach to people with disabilities, the effectiveness of these approaches, their information needs related to online outreach, and remaining priority information needs. Building on this gap assessment relating to employer outreach and people with disabilities, there are two issues not previously addressed and worth further examination under the next phase of the EARN RCR process. These are: 1. How to increase self-identification of disability status in the recruitment process, and 2. Understanding why jobseekers with disabilities may choose to apply (or not) to an organization. In both cases, employers who participated in the RCR focus groups were interested in hearing directly from jobseekers/employees with disabilities about what might influence these decisions. This project will query individuals with disabilities about their impressions of messaging from organizations, specifically related to career pages on the company website(s). This inquiry directly builds from the EARN Year One RCR-related efforts in conducting a literature review on online recruitment of and outreach to people with disabilities, as well as a report from a review of 40 Fortune 500 company career pages. Employers made it clear that, given limited resources, a strong case needs to be made for innovations in this process, and, if only a few things can be changed, they want to understand what will be most impactful in facilitating applicants with disabilities to apply for their positions and to identify as a person with a disability. Findings will be used to add the needed critical perspective of people with disabilities to the development of resources for employers related to effective online outreach to people with disabilities. These resources will be available on the EARN website and promoted throughout extensive networks of employer national and international professional associations that are partnered with EARN. Study objectives: • To build understanding from an applicant’s perspective of how employer messaging in the online outreach process impacts key outcomes related to recruiting people with disabilities; • To provide information and resources informed by the perspectives of people with disabilities that will support organizations in improving messaging in cost-effective ways.
