FROM THE MARGINS TO THE MAINSTREAM OF SOCIETY: TRANSFORMING THE LIVES OF WORKERS WITH EXCEPTIONALITY, THEIR CO-WORKERS, BUSINESS, CORPORATE PRACTICES, POLICIES AND THE WORKPLACE
Project Director:  Dr. Roberto E. Javier, Jr.
Funding Agency:  Unilab Foundation

The research provides a picture of the present workplace of differently-abled persons—the corporate practices, the policies pertaining to their condition, and their relationship with co-workers. The workers were identified as either exhibiting autism spectrum disorder or intellectual disability, based on the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual for Mental Disorder 5 2013 (DSM-MD5). The study presents empirical evidence on how the neurocognitive functions of persons with autism and the socio-emotional sense-abilities of intellectually disabled individuals can be transformed into exceptional work performance and productivity. The research was conducted in selected companies in key cities in the Philippines (at least three cities each in Luzon, Visayas, and Mindanao).

As an offshoot of the study, a sourcebook entitled From Exceptionality to Exceptional: Inclusion of Differently Abled Persons in the Workplace was launched in September 2014 by the DLSU Publishing House in partnership with the Unilab Foundation, Inc. Authored by members of the project team headed by Dr. Roberto Javier, Jr., the book can be used as reference for business development or to design a human resource program in the promotion of productivity and health in the workplace.

At present, research team member Dr. Raymond Habaradas, Director of the Center for Business Research and Development of the Ramon V. del Rosario College of Business, is involved in the development of a human resource management manual for local companies to hire/place persons with intellectual disability in their work organizations.
