How Sponsor Companies Benefit

Sponsor Companies, or those that provide the 12-month work experience to an individual with a disability can increase the representation of people with disabilities in their workforce, using an incremental approach, as they continue to grow and learn about disability, diversity, and inclusion issues.  Integrating people with disabilities into a workforce brings new and unique perspectives to the table and fosters the development of innovative solutions.  Inclusion of people with disabilities also helps Sponsor Companies to access the largely untapped pool of talent present within the disability community.  The Careers2B Program allows these employers to bring someone on board to assist with meeting business objectives, without the commitment of a permanent resource. Finally, inclusion of people with disabilities in the workforce positively impacts the overall environment by breaking down attitudinal barriers that exist toward people with disabilities and boosting team morale.
