What's in it for Employers?
Hiring a qualified worker with a disability makes good business sense. Employers tell us that these attributes have sold them on employing a qualified worker with a disability.
10. Dependability and Flexibility
Studies have shown that employees with disabilities have 40% lower rates of absenteeism compared to other workers and will often “step up to the plate” to take on new tasks, assist co-workers, or fill in when needed.
9. Employee Engagement
Employers report that hiring employees with disabilities contributes to improved morale and productivity. 80% of employers state employees with disabilities are as productive as any other employee.
8. Customer Loyalty
Research shows that employing people with disabilities taps into a growing market of customers with disabilities, $220 billion in discretionary spending each year. Further, 92% of consumers reflect favorably on businesses known to hire people with disabilities, with 87% preferring to do business with these companies.
Despite common misconceptions, people with disabilities perform just as well as any other employee once they’re in the right job. Many employers also find that workers with disabilities are among their most productive, and bring something extra to the table too such as a different perspective, a lateral approach to problem solving, or a different set of life experiences. Additionally, employers report that hiring employees with disabilities contributes to improved morale, better team work, and the increase in quality and speed of work for all employees.
6. Tax Incentives
Businesses who hire individuals with disabilities may be eligible for sizable federal and state tax credits. One in particular is the Work Opportunity Credit that provides eligible employers with a tax credit on the first $6,000 of first-year wages of a new employee with a disability.
5. Return on Investment
Studies have concluded that for each dollar spent on reasonable accommodations, businesses gain $10-$35 in benefits.
4. Increased Profits
Many employers who have hired workers with disabilities have seen a positive impact on their bottom line. Diverse work groups can create better solutions to business challenges. Employees with disabilities often show up with a positive, can-do attitude and take great pride in their work.
3. Untapped Labor Pool
Employees with disabilities can ease concerns about labor shortages. Employees with disabilities often show up with a positive, can-do attitude and take great pride in their work.
2. Job Retention
Many workers with disabilities demonstrate a high degree of loyalty, often remaining with their employers for years, reducing turnover and adding stability to the workforce.
