The Hidden Solution to the Labor Shortage

The labor shortage is not going away anytime soon.  Time to think differently.

There are nearly 500,000 unfilled jobs in Florida and that number is expected to rise by 2030.  Employers are just beginning to recognize the value of hiring from non-traditional sources of talent, which includes nearly 1.3 million workforce-aged Floridians with disabilities.  In Southwest Florida, there are more than 50,000 job seekers with disabilities who could help with your workforce needs.  It is important for employers to understand how to tap into this underutilized talent pool.
