Bridges Advisory Services
The National Organization on Disability offers companies a corporate-level partner and can also develop local customized hiring initiatives for broader replication company-wide. We deliver expert assistance for the most challenging aspects of disability hiring – from assessing internal processes; to helping identify, attract and retain talent with disabilities; to real-time problem solving.
The results are:
- New talent pipelines;
- Increased hiring and retention of qualified employees with disabilities;
- Improved corporate culture, promoting self-disclosure among employees with disabilities; and
- Setting a high bar for employment practices, and positioning our clients as an “employer of choice” for people with disabilities.
The National Organization on Disability brings more than 25 years’ experience in developing and leading corporate employment programs and is governed by an active Board of Directors of corporate leaders and chaired by First Secretary of Homeland Security and Former Pennsylvania Governor Tom Ridge.
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.
