Benefits of Employing People With Disabilities
- Diversity When you hire a person with IDD you are embracing the broad meaning of diversity and inclusion. Today more than ever, consumers and coworkers expect and appreciate a diverse workforce. Your company's brand is uplifted by the strength, caring and confidence which this diversity brings.
Individuals with IDD coordinate with a DDRC Job Coach. The Coach helps the employee to be successful in meeting your company needs.
All at no cost to you!
When employees with IDD find a job that is a right fit, they are loyal, often long-term employees. Less turn over means your company
doesn't incur recruiting and rehiring costs.
Employees with IDD value the opportunity for a job and the dignity it brings them. This equates to employees known for their good
attitudes and cooperative, dedicated approach to work.
According to APSE, employers see more than a $20 average return on investment for every dollar invested in accommodations, and customers
with disabilities and their families, friends and associates represent a multi trillion dollar market segment.
Did You Know?
There are more benefits of supported employment, including the return on investment, reduced employee turnover, and tapping into a huge marketing segment.
Among Natural Grocers founding principles are a commitment to our community and commitment to our employees. We express this in many ways, but one way we fulfill these values is by employing people with special needs, including those with developmental disabilities. As the manager of Joan, one of those employees, I see that our company gets so much from her positive attitude and committed work ethic, and that she and our other team members bring out the best in each other. We are gratified to give people with special needs the opportunity to be fulfilled through working, and believe this is a wonderful way to build community.
