Disability inclusion — how employers can benefit

Most employers in the United States don’t have specific disability inclusion initiatives. Those that do have a large advantage when it comes to finding and supporting talent

Studies have shown that employees with disabilities are as productive as other employees and have less turnover.

And they’re probably already on your team. One in four adults in the United States has a disability, whether it’s visible or invisible. Disability inclusion will help you create a more satisfied and productive workforce.

Disability inclusion — how individuals can benefit

Most employees haven’t been given the tools and information they need to build fully inclusive workplaces. Use this professional development opportunity to advance your skills.

One in four adults in the United States has a disability — that probably includes many of your coworkers. The course includes information on disability etiquette and how to build a more inclusive workplace culture. And if you’re a person with a disability, you’ll also find knowledge about your rights at work. 

Employees are welcome to share the training with others in their organization.

Disability inclusion training can set you apart

Most workplaces don’t have strong disability inclusion programs. In fact:

  • More than three quarters of HR professionals primarily define disability as something physical, even though many disabilities are invisible.

  • More than half of people managers have never participated in disability training.

  • Only 13% of HR professionals report that their organizations have disability inclusion initiatives.

If your workplace has yet to start its disability inclusion program , this training will be a helpful introduction. If your initiative is already in place, use the training to strengthen your approach.
