Companies that look beyond traditional labor sources recruit from alternative sources of available job candidates, such as people with disabilities.

A study by the U.S. Department of Education Office of Special Education and Rehabilitative Services revealed companies that employ individuals with disabilities gain several advantages over other businesses, including:

  • Skilled employees. Employees with disabilities learn to persevere and develop problem-solving, planning and people skills as part of managing a disability
  • Solid performances. Statistically, employees with disabilities have better retention rates
  • Cost savings. Workers with disabilities are consistently rated as average or above in performance, quality and quantity of work, flexibility and attendance

The CareerSource Palm Beach County Ticket to Work program provides information and assistance to businesses that wish to recruit, hire and retain employees with disabilities. Contact a Ticket to Work career consultant to learn more about:
