2016 Trends in DISABILITY Employment PRACTICES
The results of the 2016 Tracker data show that on average 75% of companies track the ratio of employees with disabilities hired to all hires, reflecting a 6% increase from 2015.
On average, people with disabilities comprise 3% of the workforce at companies in our 2016 data set, falling below the 7% target set by federal guidelines. This number remains unchanged from the 2015 Tracker results.
In the 2016 Tracker data, 16% of companies have achieved the 7% utilization goal for employees with disabilities set by federal guidelines. This is nearly double the rate seen in 2015, which found 9% of companies achieving compliance.
