The main point of the literature was establishing the background or context which drove the
need for this study to be done. It was largely obtained using the online library resources.
The methodology which was chosen to carry out this research was the Survey research
strategy. Within that the author chose to use the questionnaire as the data collection method.
The sample consisted of 167 companies in various different industries based all around the
country. The author chose quantitative data in relation to this matter.
The most notable results were the low awareness of any grants which could be obtained to
offset the costs involved with employing a person with a disability as will be subsequently
highlighted in the conclusions; the size of the companies which employed people with
disabilities, especially having a small company in their number and the contradicting
responses in regards to costs and benefits involved with the employment of people with
disabilities, especially the benefits. There was also the major issue of quantifying certain
costs and benefits.
The main conclusions were the following:
The lack of awareness of grants which ought to be examined further with more specific studies
The difficulty in quantifying certain costs and benefits
