Some of the most successful companies in the world today are those that build diversity into all aspects of their workplace, from recruitment to career development. These businesses know that people with disabilities are an under-represented talent pool and a significant source of new growth. They understand that a diverse workforce leads to increased innovation and productivity, making them more competitive in global markets and emerging sectors.
