Accenture have conducted research into companies that “embrace best practises for employing and supporting more persons in their workforce” in the USA.
This can be found at https://www.accenture.com/us-en/company-persons-with-disabilities.
The report indicates that companies who employ and support disabled people “on average over the four-year period, 28 percent higher revenue, double the net income and 30 percent higher economic profit margins than their peers.”
Key takeaways include:
- Access to new suppliers, innovative solutions and cost savings through increased competition
- Awareness of diverse customer needs, increased market share and shareholder value
- Brand enhancement and recruitment/retention of employers who want meaningful work.
