Businesses benefit from diversity and inclusion

Businesses with a strong commitment to supporting persons with disabilities in their workforce can outperform their competitors, according to our new study in partnership with Disability:IN and the American Association of People with Disabilities.

The 45 companies we identified as leaders in this field had an average of 28% higher sales, twice the net income and 30% higher economic profit margins over a four-year period compared to their competitors. Our analysis also showed that US GDP could rise to as much as $25 billion if more people with disabilities entered the workforce.


Different paths to the same goal

Worldwide there are over one billion people who experience some form of disability and 75% of these disabilities are invisible. At Accenture, we know the value each person can bring if they are given the opportunity. This is why we're creating an accessible, inclusive workplace where every person knows they belong.

This International Day of Persons with Disabilities we celebrated the incredible impact people can make when they are empowered to bring their whole selves to work.

Innovating for our clients

Providing accessibility to technologies that meet the needs of diverse populations presents a tremendous opportunity for businesses. Forward-thinking organisations that take this approach lay the foundation for an inclusive work culture that enables persons with disabilities to thrive.

Read here why companies should more care about an integrative design of their technologies.
