Motivation of the CDI-HSG The exclusion from the labor market is not only unsatisfying for people with disabilities but also for the economy. The number of people with disabilities has increased within the last decades in all industrial countries. At least 14 percent of the working population has a disability (OECD, Transforming Disability into Ability, 2003). However, only 40 percent of people with disabilities are employed (OECD, Sickness, Disability and Work, 2009). Due to the demographic change, the labor force will shrink in the upcoming years. Nonetheless, qualified employees with disabilities are still highly underrepresented in the labor market. The lacking integration into society and into the workforce creates a climate of dissatisfaction among people with disabilities and gradually decreases their ability to work and their productivity. People with disabilities, who are not integrated into the workforce, considerably challenge our social security systems. In addition, the financing of the social security systems strains our economy and society.
