Building the Business Case

Studies  show that having a more inclusive workforce boosts morale, productivity, and profitability.

People with disabilities have proven to be dedicated, conscientious and highly productive workers when given the opportunity. Their performance, attendance and retention are often above average in industry surveys.

Too often, the greatest barriers to hiring workers with disabilities are myths, fears, and misunderstandings.

Many employers are unaware of the benefits of hiring workers with disabilities or of the many services and incentives available to help them recruit, hire and retain this valuable workforce.  OOD offers several services to Ohio businesses at no cost to help with these efforts.
