Men and women with disabilities are making significant contributions to the work place. Not only can they fulfill business needs, but they bring specific benefits to the job. People with disabilities often are more reliable than other employees, increase safety in the workplace, and keep productivity stable. By being open to employing individuals with disabilities, businesses can ensure that they truly find the right person for the job.
