Celebrating the ADA: Benefits of Hiring Disabled Employees
During the month of July we recognize the anniversary of the signing of the Americans with Disabilities Act in July of 1990. Businesses who activity employ those with disabilities outperform those who do not with 28% higher revenues. Net income is two times more, and profit margins are higher by 30%. These employers also enjoy a 90% increase in employee retention.
According to business.com, “If American companies were to actively participate in hiring people with disabilities, they would have access to a talent pool of more than 10.7 million people with diverse strengths, leadership styles and ways of thinking. The study also reports that the GDP could see a boost of nearly $25 billion if just 1% more people with disabilities joined the workforce.”
