Benefits of Inclusion
Savvy business leaders are well aware of the shortage of skilled workers in Alberta and the positive impact quality employees create onproductivity in the workplace. Champions Career Centre helps companies access a significant but largely underutilized pool of quality talent and expertise: people with disabilities. The process for recruiting, hiring and retaining job seekers with disabilities is no different from hiring and retaining people without disabilities.
There are many compelling business reasons to incorporate individuals with disabilities into today's workplace. Among them:
- Increase competitive advantage
- More diverse perspectives
- Enhanced public image
- More inclusive organizational culture
The commitment to hiring persons with disabilities identifies your organization as a corporate leader in the workplace and as a community leader in society. Demonstrating social awareness within hiring practices also creates a positive image for your company as a progressive employer.
As organizational culture reflects the values of a company, many are moving towards a more inclusive culture that promotes greater teamwork and employee involvement, more creativity and innovation, improved communications, better work/life balance, respect for employee interests and needs, on-going learning and continuous improvement and diversity.
An inclusive work culture improves the morale of all employees, which in turn improves quality, productivity and service.
