Inclusion Works connects participating corporate partners with Disability:IN subject matter experts (SME) and unites them around disability inclusion through leading practices and tools.
The Inclusion Works team develops customized plans with each company and provides an array of services, including assisting Inclusion Works companies to compare their disability inclusion practices with best practices using the Disability:IN’s Disability Equality Index (DEI).
The Disability:IN Inclusion Works Team Gets Results!
Twelve Disability:IN participating companies have hired 7,941 individuals with disabilities since program start in 2014 through December 2017, an increase of over 2,000%. There were 4,552 new Inclusion Works company hires of individuals with disabilities from the end of Q3 2017 to the end of Q4 2017, and the numbers continue to grow.
This increase in the hiring of individuals with disabilities is attributed to the Inclusion Works companies’ commitment to spreading disability inclusion throughout their enterprises and increased outreach and recruitment with the intense assistance of Disability:IN Inclusion Works subject matter experts.
Inclusion Works Team Facilitates Outreach and Recruitment and the Building of Sourcing Relationships
The Inclusion Works team assists Inclusion Works companies to establish sourcing relationships with national, state and local organizations serving job seekers with disabilities. The team also works to establish relationships on targeted college campuses with Disability and Career Services’ representatives, making it easier for Inclusion Works companies to recruit and hire college graduates with disabilities.
