According to the 2021 U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics report, only 17.9 percent of persons with a disability were employed.

At Speerhead Beyond, that is simply unacceptable to us. We’re on a mission to help you access this population of untapped resources and hidden talent. Here’s why.

Did you know? Companies embracing best practices for employing and supporting persons with disabilities in their workforce are outperforming their competitors and achieving tangible financial benefits. In fact, research reveals that leading disability-inclusive companies stand to gain as much as 28% higher revenue, double the net income and 30% higher economic profit margins than their peers.*

Of course, the benefits of disability-inclusive hiring practices extend far beyond the bottom line. Persons with disabilities must be creative to adapt to the world around them. Strengths such as problem-solving skills, agility, persistence, forethought and a willingness to experiment - all of which are essential for an innovative workplace – are some of the soft skills they bring with them to the workplace.

Reputational benefits? Absolutely! The National Business and Disability Council found that 66% of consumers will purchase goods and services from a business that features persons with disabilities in their advertising, and 78% will purchase the same from a business that takes steps to ensure easy access for individuals with disabilities at their physical locations.
