Hire a Person with Disabilities

Consider hiring a person with disabilities – you might be surprised

Does your business need employees? Employers are starting to see that individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities can be hard working and dedicated employees. A national sudy from the Insititute for Corporate Productivity found that three quarters of businesses hiring workers with intellectual and developmental disabilities report a positive experience, with one third saying the experience exceeded their expectations. Among the positives, these businesses listed were an inclusive and diverse workforce: good talent matches for the job, motivated and dependable employees, and even increased customer loyalty. While your business benefits from having a good employee, like all of us, individuals with disabilities benefit from having a good job.

Marie Mills Center has been placing individuals into jobs for nearly 30 years – it is not new to us.
