Employment of People with Disabilities

You want to hire based on talent. If a person has the ability, the disability doesn't make a difference.

Hiring great employees is about finding the people who can fill your job requirements and demonstrate personal traits such as trustworthiness, a strong worth ethic, and the ability to work as a team player.

We want to help you reach qualified job candidates so that more of them will apply for your open position and tell you what they can bring to your organization.

Our research shows that most employers genuinely want to hire more people with disabilities, but they rarely encounter them through their normal referrals, recruiters, and internet-based job postings. We can help you find where to access qualified candidates with disabilities.

Also, employers tell us they have a few unanswered questions that can cause them to hesitate.  Such as, what do workplace accommodations actually cost? (Two-thirds of accommodations cost less than $500, with many costing nothing.) See our Facts and Myths for straight-talking answers to many of the questions you may have.
