Employment is one of the important requirements for the integration of disabled people to daily life. The tourism industry is one of Turkey’s important industries with a great potential for growth. However this growth must be a planned and balanced one with appropriate consideration of its human resources. In order to get the most benefit from the disabled workforce, it is of interest to understand the types of jobs that may be more suitable for specific types and degrees of disability. Suitability is a relative issue which may be described differently if one is an employee, an employer, or an expert. It would also change from one person to another. This study aims to determine different types of jobs suitable for different types of disability. A two-round Delphi survey will be used to find some optimized answers to this complex question. The study does not aim to limit or dictate the types of jobs for disabled people, but rather to find out new possibilities of employment and come up with certain recommendations for the disabled community and the hospitality industry on this issue.
