Pandemic ripple effects continue, and people are leaving jobs left and right. However, one group has been clamoring to get in: disabled people! Those that are in the workforce are eager to fully share their talents.
Before the pandemic, 70% of reasonable accommodations for remote work that went into litigation were denied. The response to the pandemic demonstrated that remote and flexible work arrangements were not an undue hardship, but rather a boon for businesses around the world. Yet stigmas persist, and employment outcomes for disabled and neurodivergent people are not on par with their nondisabled peers. They represent a highly valuable, untapped market that can help address the ongoing talent gap.
How do you gain, retain, and promote this unseen workforce? In this webinar we will focus on real life strategies for inclusion of disabled and neurodivergent people in every facet of your organization or business.
