Workers with a disability have higher unemployment rates and job insecurity when compared to their peers without a disability, but supervisors often lack the expertise to successfully guide these employees. This study looked at a training designed to help supervisors improve their daily guidance and concluded that employees with a work disability were very satisfied with the guidance of supervisors who followed the training. The authors recommend that training of supervisors should focus more on ensuring adequate work conditions; improving their skills regarding appreciation, attitude, and communication; and providing employees with opportunities to learn new work tasks.
