Abstract

The Business Case of Employing People with Disabilities

As the baby boomer generation reaches retirement age, the retirement wave swells creating workforce shortage. Moreover, employee loyalty is declining; one recent study shows that 76 percent of full-time workers are willing to leave their current job for opportunistic reasons. The combined effects of these recent trends present a challenge for the labor intensive hospitality industry that requires both experienced and loyal workforce. Hence, employers should look for alternative sources of loyal and dedicated expertise.
