Employees with Disabilities are like everyone else. Debra has documented case after case (large corporations to small companies) how corporate leaders are realizing the importance of accessibility. This is true for their workers AND for their customers.
After all, as a customer I appreciate having solutions to help me with my disability. As an employee, the same sentiment applies.
Please read Debra's new book. The insights will change your world. And they just might change someone else's world as well.
The largest minority group in the United States is person's with disabilities, affecting one out of every three households. Convinced that “the real disability is being unable to see human potential,” Debra Ruh––speaker, author, and consultant for Human Potential––is focusing her efforts on those with disabilities and aging issues. When told by "experts" that her daughter, Sara––born with Down’s Syndrome––would be lucky to gather shopping carts for a living, Debra refused to accept this and started an organization devoted to helping companies see the worth and potential in hiring disabled employees. Debra shares her essential step-by-step guide for business executives to create accessible jobs for all. By citing numerous case studies and positive Corporate feedback, she verifies that these practices are effective in employing an underutilized market of great potential. TAPPING INTO HIDDEN HUMAN CAPITAL is a well developed, enlightening roadmap... a must read for all personnel involved in today's hiring practices.
~ Kris Miller, TopShelf Reviews
How one business grew their market by 20 million people by factoring in people with disabilities surprised me because many businesses are failing to do this.
It's refreshing to see a book that is not based on the author's point of view. Rather, Debra has successfully blended many point of views based on actual experiences to highlight the value of employing people with disabilites.
By gathering the facts and presented them side-by-side with various point of views from over 30 different companies who are engaged in improving a better environment for people with disabilities. Not just internally in the workspace with employees who have both temporary and permanent disabilties but also externally with their customers.
In today's competitive environment where everyone is searching for the last mile, Debra illustrates how businesses are beginning to realize it's not about the last mile, it's about an ecosystem where not only can a person with a disability earn an income, but also spend that income which has a greater purchasing power than you might realize.
As a result of her efforts, this book turned out to be a great resource of information on why employing people with disabilities can improve your bottom line. Without a doubt, I look forward to reading more of her work.
The book opened my mind, just as it did my heart. I had not previously understood how really good it is for a company, and for a community, to employ people who appear to struggle more than others.
While we focus so much on ability, we little focus on the love that these people are so blessed with. This love radiates out from them and is by far the greatest selling factor any employer could wish for.
Well done Debra. I really love your book.
