Inclusive Workplace: Disabilities

In the three decades since the passage of the Americans with Disabilities Act, employment has remained an elusive goal for many people with disabilities. In 2020, 17.9% of people with disabilities were employed, compared with 61.8% of those without disabilities, according to the U.S. Labor Department. To create a more diversified and inclusive workplace, HR leaders must address the needs of employees with all abilities.
