ASSUNCAO, Renata Vale; CARVALHO-FREITAS, Maria Nivalda de  e  OLIVEIRA, Marcos Santos de. Job satisfaction and career advancement opportunities for professionals with disabilities. Rev. Psicol., Organ. Trab. [online]. 2015, vol.15, n.4, pp. 340-351. ISSN 1984-6657.

This research aimed to identify whether disabled persons' satisfaction with their career opportunities and development is related to company investment in the careers of its employees. This is a quantitative study, whose data were analyzed statistically. The investigation was carried out with 51 people with disabilities (PwD) from several Brazilian states. The results indicate that, from the standpoint of disabled workers, career development policies are not clear and explicit within their organizations, and that the forms of career management adopted by companies directly influence the satisfaction of PwD regarding opportunities for professional growth. It was also possible to verify that the strategies of hiring PwD to fulfill a quota, without considering the technical and functional competence of these workers, contributes to making them feel dissatisfied with their opportunities for professional growth.

Palavras-chave : People with disabilities; professional growth; job satisfaction.
