“The Right Talent, Right Now” is the rallying cry of disability advocates everywhere as we highlight October as National Disability Employment Awareness Month.
Doing so underscores the essential role that people with disabilities play in America’s economic success, especially in an era when historically low unemployment and global competition are creating a high demand for skilled talent.
“Every day, individuals with disabilities add significant value and talent to our workforce and economy,” says U.S. Secretary of Labor Alexander Acosta, adding, “Individuals with disabilities offer employers diverse perspectives on how to tackle challenges and achieve success. Individuals with disabilities have the right talent, right now.”
Observed annually in October, National Disability Employment Awareness Month celebrates America’s workers with disabilities both past and present, and emphasizes the importance of inclusive policies and practices to ensure that all Americans who want to work can work, and have access to services and supports to enable them to do so.
With continued advances in such supports, including accessible technology, it is easier than ever before for America’s employers to hire people with disabilities in high-demand jobs.
Noble’s Community Employment team is eager to help you achieve real bottom-line results by hiring qualified, dedicated people with disabilities.
