Why Hire Persons with Disabilities?

An aging population, shrinking labour force, organizational restructuring and equal opportunity legislation are some of the contributing factors that will require organizations to develop new and creative approaches to managing people.  Employers need to attract, recruit and retain qualified and skilled employees… persons with disabilities are often an underutilized talent pool of employees and have the skills and qualifications needed to fill your positions.

Successful business knows that when recruitment and hiring practices are inclusive to employees with disabilities, the business benefits from increased innovation, productivity, profitability, reduced recruitment cost and the ability to retain talent.

NBESS provides consultation and training to business owners, senior leaders and human resource professionals to review and articulate the business case based on each employer’s unique needs and goals.
