About winning the Seal
The NOD Leading Disability Employer Seal is awarded based on data furnished by companies in response to the Disability Employment Tracker™ — a free, confidential online assessment that benchmarks companies' performance against other participants in each of the six key aspects examined:
Climate and Culture
Workplace & Technology
Strategy & Metrics
To be considered for the 2017 Leading Disability Employer Seal, companies must complete the Tracker during the designated qualifying window, which is open from October 1, 2016 - March 1, 2017.
While the Tracker is entirely confidential, organizations may opt to be considered for the Leading Disability Employer Seal. Responses are scored, taking into account both disability employment practices and performance. Scoring prioritizes practices that are associated with increased disability employment outcomes over time, in addition to current performance in disability employment. Respondents also receive points based on the percentage of people with disabilities in their workforce.
