Are you an Inclusive Employer?

Did you know hiring people with disabilities is good for business? It really is!

Businesses in our community know how challenging it is to find and keep good employees. People with disabilities represent an important employee talent pool that is largely untapped.

Employers focused on creating and supporting an Inclusive Workplace report having greater success with their recruiting and retention strategies.

When organizations engage in Inclusive Hiring practices and focus on the strengths, talents and abilities of individuals, research proves these employers are 120% more likely to hit financial targets and reduce employee turnover rates, while not adversely impacting workplace safety. Another study showed that most workplace accommodations cost less than $500, when most do not cost your company a dime!
