1. Understand the ROI

Leading companies in areas specific to disability employment and inclusion achieve: 28% higher on revenue; 2x higher on net income; and 30% higher on economic profit margin.

Companies that start the disability inclusion journey, and improved disability inclusion over time, were four times more likely to have higher shareholder returns than their peers.
