Many businesses see the value in having a diverse workforce and don’t need to be convinced.  To begin to assess your company’s diversity practices, consider Disability: IN’s free benchmarking tool, the Disability Equality Index (DEI)

The Disability Equality Index (DEI) has become an integral and trusted component of many companies’ diversity benchmarking strategies. Results are leveraged as a roadmap for advancing disability-inclusive policies and practices for employees, customers, suppliers, and community stakeholders. It provides an honest evaluation and recommends steps your company can take to ensure you are being inclusive and providing work environments and consumer experiences that allow everyone to comfortably participate.

A total of 405 companies achieved top scorer status on the 2023 DEI with scores of 80 and above, and these companies have been recognized as 2023’s “Best Places to Work for Disability Inclusion”. A visible commitment to disability inclusion by senior leadership is highly correlated with strong performance on the DEI as 87% of the 164 companies whose CEO has signed Disability:IN’s CEO Letter on Disability Inclusion scored 80 or above in 2023.
