Outcomes for Employers
A Diverse Workforce is a Business Strategy
TLC Outcomes Service can help you create a more diverse workforce within your organization. Currently, individuals with disabilities are an under-utilized resource for hiring capable, knowledgeable, skilled workers. Businesses that embrace a diverse workforce are strategically positioned in the business community. Human Resource departments often rely on the support of TLC Outcomes Service to simplify the seemingly complicated task of finding, screening, and supporting employees with disabilities.

Why consider employees with disabilities?
Individuals with disabilities can be a valuable source of employees for your business. They often bring a fresh and unique perspective that enhances diversity in your workforce.
What is Rule 503?
Rule 503 sets a goal for the number of individuals with disabilities in the workforce of federal contractors at 7%. This goal is intended as a guideline that incents a more diverse hiring pool and creates employment opportunities for individuals with disabilities. Failing to meet this goal is not a violation of the regulation. However, compliance is likely to improve a contractor’s positioning for a bid. Read more about Rule 503.
Do your supervisors have the answers to the following questions?
- What questions can I ask?
- What can I do to help employees who are struggling?
- What strategies can I use to make my employees more effective?
- What questions are going to “get me in trouble”?
- What do I do if a new hire with a disability isn’t meeting job expectations?
- What if I think we have a person with a disability on staff, but I’m not sure and I want to offer support?
- What strategies and training can I give to an individual who needs a little extra help to get the job done well?
- How can I shift administrative tasks to a lower paid employee, freeing up a higher paid employee?
We can help you answer these and other questions.
