The overall research aim that deals with this is as follows; What are the costs and benefits of employing a person with a disability? There are three main research objectives with respect to this research project and the overall research aim. The research objectives are as follows; What are the Costs of Employing a Person without a Disability? What are the Extra Costs of Employing a Person with a Disability? What are the Benefits of Employing a Person with a Disability? 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 benefitsen_US
