By posting your job and hiring workers through Chronically Capable, not only are you receiving the highest-quality talent, but you are also serving as a powerful force in reducing the stigma around hiring chronically ill workers.

What is the 7% utilization goal you mention?

keyboard_arrow_down

Updated in Section 503, these regulations establish a nationwide 7% utilization goal for qualified IWDS. Also called a utilization or aspirational goal, this requirement is not a quota, but a way to ensure that federal contractors include disabilities in their strategies around recruitment and hiring.

Isn’t it expensive to implement workplace accommodations?

keyboard_arrow_down

Many companies are not currently taking advantage of the benefits of hiring chronically ill persons, as employers are concerned about the costs of accommodating, when in reality, these are actually minimal and fruitful investments. As we make more companies aware of the potential gains and share and elevate the success stories, we can quickly get more persons with illnesses and disabilities into the workplace, where they can actually thrive.

Do you offer support to employers beyond just providing a job board?

keyboard_arrow_down

Yes, we offer supplemental services! We’ll help you onboard your new staff members through personalized training programs and coaching services. If you’re looking for some extra educational opportunities, we’ll send our CEO to come speak to your staff members about best practices. Additionally, inadequate marketing is a common barrier to increasing diversity. We can help change that, setting your company apart with custom graphics, original videos, and co-written articles.

Are applicants and current employees required to disclose their illness or disability?

keyboard_arrow_down

In short, no, however, employers should encourage applicants and current employees to be open about their needs so that they can work to create realistic need-based accommodations. Businesses that want to encourage disclosure should ensure that they clearly communicate inclusion and non-discrimination as a workplace value and should back this statement by a willingness to make accommodations and promote a supportive culture and work environment.
