This article discusses the added benefit of employing disabled workers, as employers who embrace inclusive hiring practices can improve the overall company culture and increase their bottom line. Employers need to not only recognize the value that disabled employees bring to the team, but also create an inclusive culture with targeted training and resources. Additionally, government incentives such as the Work Opportunity Tax Credit should be explored to further incentivize employers to make hiring decisions based more on talent and ability than disability. With thoughtful attention to the challenges and biases surrounding disabilities and employment, the opportunities for success are significant.
