The National Organization on Disability Urges Companies to Act Now & Advance Workforce Disability Inclusion Practices

“As our country continues to grapple with civil unrest and a global pandemic, the time is now for all companies to advance their disability inclusion practices and build a stronger more inclusive workforce,” said NOD President Carol Glazer. “Individuals with disabilities make up 20 percent of the U.S. population, the largest diversity group, and including them in hiring decisions increases a company’s talent pool exponentially. The 2021 Tracker is the only tool in the field providing a company with the data to improve their disability self-ID rates and workforce inclusion practices, as well as offering a deeper understanding of which key activities correlate to improved outcomes.”
