Schmersahl Treloar & Co. will be presenting a seminar that willfocus on ways in which your company can gain a competitive advantage in hiring from an untapped pool of hard working people! Finding, hiring, and retaining employees is a major challenge right now. However, there is an untapped labor market to support many companies needs for quality employees.
Most people with a disability desire to work, but face obstacles that are difficult to overcome without the right opportunity. A 2019 study titled The Inclusive Talent Pool: Employing People with Disabilities showed 81% of adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities do not have a job – and of those, 46% would like one. There are 463,213 individuals with a disability in Missouri with only 170,000 employed. St Louis county accounts for approximately 60,000 individuals of working age with a disability. This leaves the business community a vast untapped resource to secure employees.
At the next BOSS event and you’ll learn:
1. The competitive advantages of hiring individuals with disabilities.
2. How to access this untapped labor market.
3. Three models for implementing a disability employment program.
4. How your Tax dollars are used to help employers.
