Why should organizations include people with disabilities in their business and hiring strategies? Because they cannot afford not to.
As our economy grows and good employees become harder to find, people with disabilities offer a relatively untapped reservoir of talent. In fact, having a diversified recruitment pool offers more choice, thus increasing the likelihood of getting the right person for the job.
This resource guide, developed to assist employers in hiring people with disabilities and integrating them into their workplace, contains practical advice on everything from pre-employment considerations through recruitment and selection, appropriate modifications to accommodations, and workforce education.
This guide was developed jointly with the Ontario Ministry of Citizenship.
