The Harkin Institute, Voya Financial collaborate on research paper demonstrating that disability-inclusive companies create value for shareholders and society

NEW YORK–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Voya Financial, Inc. (NYSE: VOYA), announced today that a research paper released at The 2022 Harkin International Disability Employment Summit shows that companies with an environmental, social and governance (ESG) strategy that fosters competitive, integrated employment for people with disabilities are creating a competitive advantage and positioning themselves to capitalize on a $13-trillion, global disability market.

This item is from the US and is reflecting on the positive power of diversity, including disability employment and engagement in the US business scene. For anyone interested in innovation and disability (which we are), it makes for some incredibly interesting reading.

Further, the paper highlights how these companies are creating long-term value for shareholders and stakeholders.

The paper is part of an ongoing effort by The Harkin Institute for Public Policy & Citizen Engagement at Drake University in Des Moines, Iowa, in collaboration with Voya Cares®, Voya Financial’s program that serves people with disabilities and special needs and their caregivers. The research demonstrates that competitive, integrated employment (i.e., the same rate of pay and benefits for people with disabilities as for workers who do not have disabilities) provides lasting benefits to the brand, reputation, and bottom line of companies across every sector of the economy.
