  2. Are you a business owner or manager who is thinking of hiring an employee with a disability?
    You've come to the right page. There are 54 million Americans with disabilities and nearly 30 percent of American families have at least one member with a disability. Seventy percent of working-aged adults with disabilities are unemployed. Hiring workers with disabilities can provide a number of benefits to your business:

    You Receive a Positive Return on Your Investment.

    • One study showed that workers with disabilities rated an average of 90 percent or better in job performance.

    • Research shows that workers with disabilities had fewer scheduled absences than employees without disabilities.

    • Reduced hiring and training costs. These are often completed by Achieve at no cost to the employer.

    These are: The Work Opportunity Tax Credit, The Disabled Access Credit for Small Businesses, and The Architectural barrier Removal Tax Deduction.

    • A large number of Americans (87 percent) say they prefer to patronize businesses that hire people with disabilities.

    • People with disabilities are consumers representing a trillion dollar market segment. They purchase products and services from companies that meet their needs.
    • People who have direct experience with people with disabilities as co-workers see this experience as positive.They also see people with disabilities in the workforce ashelping employees to have a better understanding of people with disabilities.

    • Employers report that the work ethic of employees with disabilities has a positive effect on the morale and production of other employees.

    • Employment is a critical step toward independence. Businesses that hire workers with disabilities are seen as helping those workers become more productive.
