KPMG has been recognized as a 2019 Leading Disability Employer by the National Organization on Disability (NOD). At this year’s NOD Corporate Leadership Council Annual Forum and Leading Disability Employers’ Dinner, the NOD publicly acknowledged and celebrated the firm for being a trailblazer in building an inclusive workforce for people with disabilities.
According to the NOD, the Leading Disability Employer Seal™ is public recognition for organizations that lead the way in disability inclusion, and tap into the benefits of hiring talent with disabilities. These benefits include high rates of productivity and dedication, with greater employee engagement across the workforce.
A driving force behind KPMG’s efforts is our business resource group, Abilities in Motion, whose members volunteer their time to help foster an environment of awareness, engagement and support for our employees with disabilities and their caregivers.
