Hiring someone with a disability is good business

And that’s the bottom line

Your business needs skilled employees to grow, and these days skilled employees are getting harder and harder to find.
 
Manitobans with disabilities represent an untapped talent pool that offers you:
  • Performance – people with disabilities perform as well or better than their co-workers without disabilities.
  • Stability – people with disabilities tend to stay with their employers longer than employees without disabilities generating significant savings in recruitment and training costs.
  • Reliability – people with disabilities have the same or lower absenteeism as their co-workers without disabilities.
  • Diversity – people with disabilities bring diversity to a workplace and have a positive impact on staff morale.
The marketAbilities Program is designed to help people with disabilities find and keep jobs.
