The Ability Factor: Employing people with disabilities makes good business sense

People with disabilities are the world's largest minority group (1 billion people — 15% of the world's population; of which 785 million are of working age).

Stereotypes and misconceptions prevent them from accessing jobs because these often focus on their disability instead of ability, when in fact they can and do work. This short video aims to raise awareness about the benefits of employing people with disabilities.
