BIT partners with employers nationwide who are looking to attract, hire and retain some of the best talent available from the people with disabilities community.

From preparation to placement, we offer inclusive hiring and workplace development solutions designed to help you hire and retain the best possible talent and diversify your workforce.

BIT seeks to reduce this employment gap through our inclusive hiring solution connecting employers to job seekers with disabilities.

Whether you’re learning more about disability inclusion or ready to take the accessibility challenge, we offer:

  • Disability etiquette and sensitivity training
  • Workshops addressing unconscious bias
  • Compliance Services assessing office environments, business policies, and digital platforms
  • Accessible Technology Training and Consulting
