Employ someone with a disability
Employing a person with a disability can provide a competitive advantage while also demonstrating a commitment to inclusion.
Small businesses are finding it more difficult than ever to hire talented employees. Employing people with disabilities can help companies meet their talent needs while also improving their competitiveness.
By employing individuals with disabilities, businesses can:
- expand their pool of talent;
- create a culture of diversity;
- meet their workforce needs;
- foster creative business solutions;
- generate goodwill among customers.
A disability is defined as a physical or mental impairment that limits one or more major life activities significantly. Individuals with disabilities frequently require workplace accommodations, such as a modification or adjustment to a job, the work environment or the hiring process.
It’s the employee’s abilities and not his or her disabilities that count. Employees with disabilities can use job accommodations to help them complete certain tasks that are critical to their jobs.
Job accommodations can include:
- screen-reading software for employees who have low vision;
- raised desks for employees who use wheelchairs;
- job coaching for employees with intellectual disabilities;
- workplace personal assistance services;
- working from home (telecommuting);
- adjustments to work schedules.
Businesses can gain a competitive advantage and demonstrate their commitment to the community by investing in, hiring and keeping talented employees with disabilities.
