It’s been proven that disability inclusion increases ROI. By being inclusive, businesses can foster a creative and innovative environment that leads to greater success. But how do you become an innovative and inclusive brand? It starts with education.

When businesses educate their employees on the importance of inclusion and diversity, they set the foundation for an innovative environment. Employees who feel included in the workplace are more likely to be creative and develop new ideas. In fact, studies have shown that companies with a diverse workforce are 35% more likely to outperform their competitors.

Inclusion can also lead to a more positive work environment. Employees who feel like they are part of a team are more likely to be engaged in their work and have a positive attitude. This, in turn, leads to higher productivity and a better work-life balance.

Inclusive businesses are also better equipped to deal with change. When employees feel like they are part of the decision-making process, they’re more likely to be open to change. This makes companies more adaptable and responsive to the ever-changing marketplace.

If you are looking for ways to become a more inclusive organization, iDisability is the right first step. Since 2016, we’ve been helping businesses build their brand as innovative and inclusive organizations through learning focused on diversity, inclusion, partnerships with the disability community, engagement with disability-owned business enterprises, and environmental, social, and governance reporting. 

Over 4 million business users representing various industries trust us to help them build a truly inclusive workforce.

Experience it for yourself.
