Participate: Survey on Workplace Accommodations

The Rehabilitation Engineering Research Center on Workplace Accommodations at Georgia Tech is conducting a new survey on workplace features that aid function:

Greetings from the Rehabilitation Engineering Research Center on Workplace Accommodations (Work RERC) at Georgia Tech,

We are writing to announce a new survey about workplace accommodations – technology, physical changes to the workplace, or policy changes that employees have used to help them be more effective in their jobs.  We are most interested in the features that help an employee because of a limitation in his or her ability due to a loss of function or disability.

The survey is online and should take 30-60 minutes to complete, depending on the number of accommodations used.  You will have the option of saving your survey and continuing it at a later time.  Individuals who have difficulty using the computer may also schedule an appointment with us to complete the survey over the phone.  Contact information is listed on the survey site.

If you are interested in finding out more about this survey, please visit the link below, where you will find more information and can continue on to take the survey if you desire.

In addition, please forward this message to anyone you know who may be interested in taking this survey.  We would like our survey results to represent a wide range of jobs and accommodation needs.

Thank you,
Maureen Linden

Principle Investigator

  1. This is interesting. Are you also providng a paper survey version for our non-seeing friends. I have increased my response rates with paper surveys to augment web surveys for people who are legally blind and have tools or help with paper based information.

    All the best to you.

      Hello Mr. Beaulaurier —

      This survey is actually the work of the Rehabilitation Engineering Research Center on Workplace Accommodations at Georgia Tech. Their research coordinator, Maureen Linden, is probably the best person to ask about their accommodation strategies. You can reach them at 404/894-1414, 800/726-9119. or visit them online at http://www.workrerc.org/

    • Mr. Beaulaurier,

      We have tested the online survey using Jaws and other screen readers. However, we are also accommodating those with visual impairments by offering the survey through telephone interview. If you need further information, please contact me directly at maureen.linden@coa.gatech.edu or 404-894-0561.

      Thank you
