For Business Leaders
Only one in five working-age Americans with disabilities are employed. That means corporate America is missing out on the productive power of nearly 30 million potential workers. Yet, companies have learned that hiring people with disabilities pays bottom-line dividends, including:
- Low turnover and absenteeism;
- High productivity and facility with technology;
- Increased employee engagement across the broader workforce; and
- Strong consumer preference for companies that hire people with disabilities.
NOD has helped more than a dozen Fortune 1000 companies launch effective disability employment initiatives, with a well-documented record of superior hiring and retention results. NOD’s Corporate Services are designed to meet companies where they are in their disability employment initiatives.
We look forward to developing a customized solution to meet your company’s diversity needs.
