How do Hidden Disabilities Affect People in the Workplace?  

Adrian Hyyrylainen-Trett, enei (Employers Network for Equality & Inclusion)

Click HERE to read the full description.

Having hidden disabilities can create an extra sense of fear in the workplace.  I know of people who don’t openly share a hidden disability for fear of being ridiculed, criticised or senior Managers believing that your disability is an excuse for poor work ethic.  Being authentic and open about who you are, what challenges you face and being open about your hidden disabilities can only engender trust in the workplace and that’s why I personally choose to talk about my own experiences to give confidence to others to be the same.
