JFS’ 20in22 helping secure employment for people with disabilities

By AARON HOWARD | JHV•Thu, Apr 14, 2022

There are three reasons why an employer might want to hire a person with disabilities. 1) It’s the moral thing to do. 2) You need to hire because of inclusion mandates in a government contract or to receive state tax deductions. 3) Recruiting and hiring a person with a disability is good for business.

“People with disabilities bring unique characteristics and talents to the workplace. Statistically, they have lower absentee and lower turnover rates. Businesses that practice inclusion experience increased productivity and higher levels of innovation. All these increase shareholder value." - Jamie Paul Weiner, Manager of Disability Services & Alexander Institute for Inclusion
