People with disabilities are capable workers. Here are a few reasons why you should employ people with disabilities:
- Happy Employees
Employers love workers with disabilities as they are willing and grateful employees. They are always open to new ideas and do their best to make things happen.
- Increased Profits
Ask any employer who has disabled workers on their team and they will tell you that they have seen a rise in profit and productivity.
- They Are Loyal
These workers will stay and are less likely to leave. This in itself saves a business financially. Time is spent less on interviews and recruitment and training process.
- They are Highly Motivated
They are highly motivated and committed to their jobs and company. They have a strong desire to succeed and seek more responsibility.
- They are Trustworthy
They do not take as many sick days and leave as able bodied workers and they do not take more time at lunch than they should. With them you are guaranteed getting your monies worth with time.
- Productive workers
Many employers have stated that they meet or exceed expectations. Even more so than their peers with no disabilities.
- Their work improves all the time
Their work improves all the time. This includes workers with profound disabilities such as complete blindness.
- They are happy employees
They are happy and grateful people and their energy matches it. They truly do love their jobs and embrace every opportunity given them. They respect authority and you will never see them being abusive to other co-workers.
- Co-workers Are Inspired By Them
Co-workers are inspired by them as they have a good sense of team work. They bring about the sense of giving and working together more than their able co-workers.

“My advise to other disabled people would be, concentrate on things your disability doesn’t prevent you doing well, and don’t regret the things it interferes with. Don’t be disabled in spirit as well as physically.” – Stephen Hawking
