13 million active job seekers
Yet, by 2018 more than 5 million jobs will be unfilled
The impact of the labor shortage hinges on the workforce participation rate of the baby boomer generation. Since the likelihood of acquiring a disability increases with age, disability inclusive companies will gain the strategic advantage. They will be able to retain their current workforce longer, while tapping into the largest minority segment in the US.
OUR ROI: RETURN ON INCLUSION
"When James reports to work, he is eager to get the job done. Currently working at 160% production level, he remains focused on the task at hand and doesn't get distracted by "water-cooler" conversations. He's a natural fit for the Quality Assurance Analyst position. His keen ability to detect irregularities in patterns has easily saved our company more than a 100,000 dollars." --Performance Review 3/14/2015
