Deaf Employees' Empowerment in Two Different Communication Environments.
Backenroth, G. A. M.
International Journal of Rehabilitation Research, v20 n4 p417-19 Dec 1997
This study with 64 deaf employees working in either signing work groups or nonsigning workgroups found that employees' perceived empowerment was significantly higher in the signing work groups. Deaf associates in signing work groups experienced greater psychological stress and role conflicts, whereas deaf associates in nonsigning groups experienced more environmental risks in the workplace.
