Do companies hire people with disabilities?
No, they hire capabilities. Similarly, when someone is capable of meeting performance expectations, does their disability even matter? Yet, having an honest dialogue about disability in the workplace is often seen as too difficult or “risky”.
So guess what happens?
Nothing. Companies miss out on great talent and 80% of people with disabilities remain unemployed. We’re here to change that…
Founded in 2009, Advocations LLC is a niche recruiting firm based in Charlotte, NC. We specialize in connecting professionals with disabilities and inclusive companies, nationwide. As experts in disability and employment, we provide an outsourced solution to manage risk and facilitate opportunities.
What we do…
For employers, we offer talent acquisition and consulting services. For talent, we provide career coaching and performance management. Yet our unique value is our ability to bring together these two distinct market segments. We provide a platform to manage disability-related concerns and perceptions. Also, we offer a job board which allows companies to post jobs and target the disabled community specifically. And we strategically minimize the vocational impact of disability through creative job matching and supports.
