Quality Employees

People with disabilities…

  • Have higher retention rates and less absenteeism
  • Are a significant portion (1 in 5) of America’s talented pool of job seekers
  • Two of three say they would like to work but options are limited

Financial Benefits

  • Disabled employees can relate better to customers with disabilities, who represent $1 trillion in annual aggregate consumer spending.
  • Employers who hire people with disabilities benefit from a number of tax and financial incentives.

Accessibility Help for Employers

Access4Employment provides employers with consultation and training services to make the workplace accessible and productive. A4E ensures that adults with disabilities have equal opportunities to stay productive, independent and efficient in the workforce and in their communities. This includes adults with an existing disability, as well as those who acquire a disability via an accident or medical condition, as well as aging senior adults and veterans. Assistive Technology enhances an individual’s strengths and skills, improving  access and efficiency in all environments.

Workplace accessibility for your current and future employees does not have to be overwhelming. You already know that workplace accessibility is not only critical to hiring new talent but it is also critical to retaining your important employees.

Fact: Talented people with disabilities want to work but they face obstacles in the workplace.

Fact: Many employers face legitimate obstacles and may lack understanding of current laws and tools that are available to make their choices to hire disabled persons easier. In fact, most employers today still believe that disabled workers can’t perform their jobs as well as non-disabled workers and most expect to pay a high cost to adapt jobs to people with disabilities. This simply isn’t true.

Services Include:

  • Workplace Assessment/ Needs Assessment (Including work from Home)
  • Assistive Technology Recommendation & Training (Application, Configuration, Use, Implementation).
  • ADA Accessibility Testing & Consultation for compliance & access for websites, PDF’s, software, databases, work email platforms.
