The USA faces a shortage of 47 million employees due to new job creation and retiring boomers, driving the need for new sources of talent. Despite their unique skills and abilities, neurodiverse workers have limited access to nationwide jobs. Disability support agencies (DSAs) are often ill-equipped to provide matching talent. Furthermore, even if companies do find talent, retention issues persist due to lack of awareness. As a result of these challenges, individuals with disabilities remain under-represented in the labour force.
SourceAbled is a program which offers end-to-end consulting and staffing solutions, including HR technologies, to manage, track, and provide qualified candidates to support disability inclusion programs. It helps bridging the gap between corporations and networks of prequalified, fully vetted DSAs. It also empowers DSAs by offering a technology platform that they can use to go beyond their local reach and explore more opportunities nationwide.
In 2018, the American Staffing Association recognized and honored Matt Brennan, an individual on the autism spectrum who worked with SourceAbled.
