  • Employees with disabilities and barriers to employment have an 80% lower turnover rate compared to employees that do not have a disability

  • 92% of people surveyed responded that they’re more likely to support a business who hires people with disabilities and barriers to employment

  • By hiring someone with a disability or barrier to employment your workforce will more closely represent the larger population, and therefore welcome a larger customer base

  • Employers that hire people with disabilities get new insights into their operations, enabling them to better target people with disabilities (and the 55 Billion in purchasing power they represent!)
