Frequently Asked Questions
Will a person with disabilities be able to do the job?
A 2014 study conducted by the Institute for Corporate Productivity [I4CP] found that three-quarters or more of employers rate their employees with developmental disabilities as good to very good on most performance factors–including work quality and productivity. Employees with developmental disabilities often have to work harder to find employment and apply that same level of effort to their performance. We work with you to effectively match employee skills to your job needs, focusing on ability.
Will hiring a person with disabilities create more work?
EmployAbility works to match the needs of the job to the abilities of the individual to ensure they meet your standards. Additionally, most workers with disabilities do not require any special accommodations. When accommodations are necessary, approximately 20% do not require any costs, and 50% cost less than $500.
What are the benefits of hiring a person with disabilities?
Hiring a person with disabilities offers multiple benefits including the addition of highly motivated employees, demonstrating an inclusive and diverse culture that’s attractive to critical talent pools, and improving customer satisfaction.
Your team also benefits from the positive qualities workers with disabilities bring to their role. Employers describe individuals with developmental disabilities as dependable, engaged, and motivated. They also show great attendance, attention to work quality, and high productivity – the ideal worker!
You may also be eligible for certain tax credits as an incentive to hire workers with disabilities or to offset the cost of creating an accessible workplace. For more information, visit the IRS website or speak with your tax adviser.
