Individuals With Disabilities Who Are in the Workforce: Interview with Jacob Huff

It’s been a few months since we interviewed individuals with disabilities in the workforce for our blog, and I can think of no better person to bring them back than with Jacob Huff.  I’ve known Jacob for over ten years, and he’s one of my best friends. He has grown so much since I met […]

Are Your Office Events Accessible for Everyone?

I’m going to go out on a limb here and guess that if you’ve worked a full-time job for any amount of time, you’ve engaged in work-related things outside of your office.  Whether it be a business trip to visit clients, a development conference, or just a team-building retreat, these activities usually require you to […]

In Case of Emergency, What About Your Disabled Employees?

It’s important for everyone to have an “In Case of Emergency” plan.  Having a disability only adds to the steps needed to take in order to be safe in all kinds of situations.  Things like fires, earthquakes, and tornadoes don’t warn you when they’re coming, so you need to be prepared at all times.

6 More Accommodations to Make For Employees with Disabilities

One of the tips given was to let employees work from home if they can, and even […]

6 Myths about hiring someone with a disability

There are lots of stereotypes and misconceptions surrounding people with disabilities.  We’ve talked a bit about the process of hiring people with disabilities, and some benefits of hiring them as well as how to make the process accessible.

10 Ways Offices Can Be More Accessible

The world isn’t built for disabled people.  Offices, like many places in the world, aren’t always accessible to people with disabilities.  A lot of the time, it’s the little things that can be fixed in fifteen minutes; but because it’s not something that bothers most people, it doesn’t get addressed.  And to make things even […]

Making Your Hiring Process Accessible

In the last article, we discussed some benefits of hiring people with disabilities.  Now, let’s go one step further and hire someone with a disability. Accessibility is an important part of the hiring process to get right from the start, because if it isn’t accessible you won’t be getting any applicants with disabilities.  Think of […]
