SBA News: National Disability Employment Awareness Month

Hiring disabled individuals can help businesses meet their talent needs while strengthening their competitive edge. By hiring individuals with disabilities, businesses can:

  • Expand their pool of talent
  • Create a culture of diversity
  • Meet their workforce needs
  • Foster creative business solutions
  • Generate goodwill among customers

A disability is considered a physical or mental impairment that substantially limits one or more major life activity. Individuals with disabilities often need workplace accommodations—a modification or adjustment to a job, the work environment, or the way things are usually done during the hiring process.

By investing in recruiting, hiring, and retaining talent, including people with disabilities, businesses can give themselves a competitive edge and demonstrate their commitment to inclusion.
