Adopting a Disability Inclusion program is good for business
- Recruitment benefits include a large untapped labor pool, reduced turnover and recruiting costs, with no negative impact on productivity, safety records, or insurance costs.

Disability hiring bridges “doing good” and “good for business”

- Many are able to work and have the ability to succeed in the workplace, yet current hiring and operating practices result in the majority not being able to find employment.
“I just wanted to send my deepest gratitude for the efforts of your team for yesterday’s event. We appreciate everything that was done to accommodate and teach our students. After the event all the students were really excited and some even commented that it was the best thing that they have done all summer long!
Your collaborations with different departments on campus continue to better the community.”
