Why Inclusion is Important
People with disabilities have the same rights as everyone else and should be employed at places that are the right environment for them. We look at everything from transportation to and from work, environment and job fit when we work with people. That’s when workplace inclusion works best.
Employer Benefits
Statistically, people with disabilities have lower absentee and lower turnover rates. Businesses that practice inclusion experience increased productivity and higher levels. Employees with disabilities often have higher retention rates.
