Using Data to Build a Disability Inclusive Workforce
Chris Powell (Talmetrix), Carol Glazer (National Organization on Disability)  

NOD’s (National Organization on Disability) Employment Tracker is a free online survey that benchmarks companies’ performance in disability workforce inclusion against a pool of over 210 companies with 9 million employees.  We’ll review trend data and aggregate results from the 2021 Tracker and will report on the practices most highly correlated with disability recruitment, self-ID, retention and promotions.  This year marked the first-ever quantitative analysis on what practices have the greatest impact on critical HR metrics.  We’ll report on those results and what they signal for the future of disability inclusion in the workforce.
