bottom-line Benefits of Disability Inclusion

Disability inclusion reduces costs, opens access to new markets, builds a productive and reliable workforce, and encourages innovation.


Take advantage of the $200-plus billion market represented by individuals with disabilities. A pro-disability outlook offers access to new markets, targets a larger group of skilled workers, encourages mutual respect among employees, and increases efficiency and performance. Many consumers prefer to do business with firms hiring persons with disabilities.

Lower costs

Qualified workers with disabilities tend to have fewer absences and remain with an employer longer than employees without disabilities, with nearly identical performance ratings. Save costs through reduced absenteeism and turnover, lower hiring and training costs with a minimal investment for disability-accommodation, and various tax incentives.


Diversity sparks creative thinking for new perspectives and processes that can transform products and services. Inclusion stimulates research and development, new ways to recruit and retain talent, and improved use of technology for greater productivity. It can also lead to recognition as an employer of choice.
