Tittel

Creating cognitive accessibility in workplaces. Implications for management.

Vitenskapelig sammendrag

Ordinary working life, globally as in Norway, is generally exclusive in relation to workers with disabilities, particularly workers with cognitive impairments. Whereas workers may be more or less employable, workplaces may be more less accessible.

From a ‘disability perspective’, the accessibility of workplaces is a central human rights issue. But from a ‘management’ perspective, accessibility – cognitive accessibility in particular – may also be a salient lens to examine and improve organizational learning and practices.

In this study, I explore cognitive accessibility as an implicit feature of any workplace by analysing work accommodations for workers with cognitive impairments, and what these imply for management in general.

My main research question is: How is cognitive accessibility created in workplaces? Subsidiary questions: What characterises work accommodations for workers with cognitive impairment? What dilemmas arise in such accommodation and how may they be resolved? What does cognitive accessibility mean for workplace democratisation?

Metode

Qualitative: Case studies with combined field work and qualitative interviews. Critical Interpretive Synthesis.
