Employment Article in BC Business

Chris Arnold from PNGI wrote an article posted in BC Business focused on fostering a diverse workforce. Chris feels that there are a number of advantages to hiring people with “diverseabilities” and  pointed out that, “A labour market study in 2009 found that B.C.’s disabled persons were more highly educated than the national average, with a higher post-secondary education completion rate. It also found that fewer than one in five persons with a disability required job redesign and most workplace accommodations that were required involved relatively little cost and did not require major changes to how the work is performed.” For the full article click this link in BC Business Online.
