Enable America’s business to business meetings unite workforce leaders, managers and human resource professionals, giving insight on how other businesses have benefited by diversifying their workforce and employing people with disabilities.
EA is committed to the goal of increasing employment among people with disabilities in the United States by addressing issues that employers may have with hiring disabled individuals.
To accomplish this goal, we are building a base of informed business leaders in each community through a series of Business to Business Meetings.
Within several weeks of a Community Connection Meeting, Enable America sponsors a breakfast meeting for business leaders, managers and human resource professionals to learn how other businesses have benefited from employing individuals with disabilities. We also provide employers with a toolkit for hiring and retaining individuals with disabilities, including personnel policies and resources for tax and insurance questions.
Hiring a person with a disability can be good business.
Here are the statistics:
- 1 in 5 Americans has a disability
- People with disabilities are 70% more likely to stay at a job five years or longer than an able bodied person
- People with disabilities are 50% less likely to be absent or late for work
- More than 70% of working aged adults with disabilities want to work, that´s a potential job pool of 18 million people
- The government pays more than $230 billion a year in disability benefits
Good things happen when people have jobs.
Because when people have jobs, they have homes. They have families. They have self-esteem. Independence. Pride. They have a place in the community. And those are good things for us all.
