  • Diverse work groups can create better solutions to business challenges.
  • People with disabilities are better educated than ever, and are proven to meet and/or exceed challenges.
  • A person with a disability motivates work groups and increases productivity.

  • Employing people with disabilities is good for the individual, the business and society. This is a “win-win” strategy.
