Research into the remote e-working experiences of Disabled and Neurodivergent Workers (DNW)*, supported by Digit’s Innovation Fund, has been cited in a new briefing produced by the Parliamentary Office for Science and Technology.
The POSTnote, ‘Invisible Disabilities in Education and Employment‘, published on 12 January 2023 draws on the work of Dr Christine Grant and colleagues.
The ‘Remote for All research project revealed a substantial gap in the academic knowledge of DNW’s experiences of remote e-working and highlights that there is no one size fits all solution. Dr Grant expanded on these findings in two Digit Blogs, cited in the POSTnote: ‘Remote for All: Time to include people with Disability and/or Neurodiversity in the Remote Working Conversation‘ and ‘Disability, Neurodivergence and Remote Working: What employers need to know…‘.
The briefing also cites a book co-edited by Dr Grant and Digit Co-Investigator, Dr Emma Russell, ‘Agile Working and Well-being in the Digital Age‘.
