EMPLOYING PERSONS WITH DISABILITIES

EMPLOYING PERSONS WITH DISABILITIES

Many Open Door Group participants are persons with disabilities.

The reasons for hiring persons with disabilities are the same reasons for hiring anyone else: skills, experience and abilities.
Diversifying your staff by hiring persons with disabilities is good for business: 92% of consumers felt more favourable towards businesses that hire persons with disabilities. And 87% agreed they would prefer to give their business to companies that hire people with disabilities. (CSDE Study).

Open Door Group has the tools and resources to help your company become confident around hiring persons with disabilities. We will even deliver disability orientation workshops to your staff.
