Bay of Plenty Employer Attitude Survey
One in four New Zealander’s identify as having a disability, in the Bay of Plenty that figure is slightly higher. Despite making up a significant portion of our population, people with disabilities are three times less likely to be employed than those without a disability. In order to make sustainable change and work towards higher employment rates, we believe we must first understand from a business point of view, where any barriers and opportunities exist.
The following survey sets out to gather insights into Bay of Plenty employers and businesses attitudes towards hiring people with disability.

Some questions below are direct and as such may feel uncomfortable to answer, we ask that you respond honestly in order to show a true reflection on current attitudes and perspectives so we can uncover real-time barriers and opportunities. All responses will be kept confidential and neither you nor your workplace will be identified at any stage. We anticipate the survey will take approximately 10 - 15 minutes to complete.

Thank you for your time in participating in the survey. We look forward to sharing the findings in due course.

The Government definition of disability is "A person with a disability is someone who has been assessed as having a physical, psychiatric, intellectual, sensory, or age related disability (or a combination of these) which is likely to continue for a minimum of six months and result in a reduction of independent function to the extent that ongoing support is required"
