Finding (and keeping) exceptional employees in today’s labour market is a familiar challenge for every employer. High staff turnover, and the subsequent time spent recruiting and training new team members, are regularly cited as a major cost of doing business.
In addition, customers and stakeholders also expect that the businesses they frequent will demonstrate their commitment to inclusion and diversity by employing a workforce that truly reflects the wider communities in which they live.
Is there a way employers can meet these expectations, and still satisfy their operational needs?
Yes! There is a largely untapped, unique pool of talented candidates that can positively contribute towards all of the above – and so much more.
Join us in exploring the many ways in which hiring and working alongside people with diverse-abilities can not only improve the bottom line, but fundamentally transform the culture of a workplace for the better.
