In terms of its relevance in practically every quarter of society, our nation's path from diversity to inclusion has been a success. When it comes to the issue of equal opportunity for people with disabilities, there appears to be a muddled response. Persons with disabilities (PwDs) account for fewer than one percent of personnel in Indian corporates, according to Business Standard research published in 2019. These numbers highlight the shockingly low employment options for people with disabilities in the corporate sector. This capacity pool is full with untapped skills that are just waiting to be discovered. PwDs frequently go without employment possibilities despite the industry's economic expansion and the nation's labour force growing by about one million people each month. In addition to guaranteeing that at least 3 percent of the workforce in organisations is specially challenged, also provide clear guidelines for empowering PWDs to learn and advance in their careers. Similar HR procedures must be offered to employees with disabilities as well as to everyone else.Despite the industry's economic expansion PwDs are regularlydeprived of employment opportunities. The laws also make it clear how PwDs are expected to study and advance in their careers. Employees with different abilities must have access to the same HR practices as everyone else.They must also be given the tools they need to perform well at work and have a successful career. Consistent sensitization is, however, required. Based on 50 samples collected from the corporate sector in Coimbatore, this study attempts to assess HR Practices and their impact on employee empowerment of differently abled employees.
