Employers

Here's what we do for companies looking to hire:

  • We inform employers about the skills and assets of neurodiverse individuals of all abilities in their local supply pool.
  • Help institute accommodations and natural supports to enable a person with a disability to thrive in the workplace.
  • We bring the most qualified job candidates to each position.
  • Serve as liaison between candidates and state and federal agencies.
  • We collect results-driven data to monitor work performance, productivity, and quality.

Our guiding principles for companies when working with Upbound At Work

  • Diversity creates a competitive advantage in human capital
  • A candidate’s need for vocational rehabilitation is not indicative of their ability - all candidates will be evaluated so long as they can be reasonably accommodated
  • Compliance with the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) is not, in itself, inclusion
  • There is no job at your company that cannot be done by someone with a disability
  • In striving for DEAI, there is no substitute for employment
  • Past experiences with this community, positive or negative do not epitomize the community
