Does providing accessibility to disabled workers cost too much?

Providing accommodations for people with disabilities is expensive.

Did you know that for the minority of workers with disabilities who do need some sort of special equipment or accommodation, 56% of these cost less than $600, with many costing nothing at all.* And available tax incentives make it even easier for businesses to cover accessibility costs. In the end, the benefits greatly outweigh the costs. By employing someone with a disability, you not only give them a chance at being productive, but you show your other employees that you care enough to treat everyone equally. You will build a better and more loyal workforce - a long-term benefit that is worth any cost. Contact us today at to strengthen your workforce!
