AbstractThe article discusses the problems of education, employment, work station organization, and management of employees with hearing disabilities, employed in production operator positions. The main issues related to legal regulations and employment opportunities and barriers are discussed. A questionnaire was prepared covering 18 questions grouped into the following research areas: employee status, selection and recruitment, organization and conditions of work, and employee development. The research study involved 161 employees selected according to the criteria of targeted selection. This article presents the results of the research study on the diversity of opinions from the following perspectives: sensory (hearing vs hearing impaired), type of work (production vs non-production), and the employees’ age (up to 50 years vs 50+). Theoretical conclusions concern the positioning of the situation of deaf and hard-of-hearing people in workplaces. Recommendations regarding the perception of the occupational situation, management methods, and managerial staff’s perception of the specific nature of the work of the surveyed group are application-related, connected with breaking the barriers of “universalism” in the attitudes and decisions of executives.
