ROI, CSR, and ESG Impact.

ADVANCE+ participant employers can track and promote significant social and economic advantages achieved through the employment and inclusion of workers with disabilities such as autism. First, the return on investment (ROI) you’ll make is designed to cover all costs within the first year. Second, you will be creating social impact with meaningful employment for people with disabilities, which is reflected in measurable impacts such as taxpayer savings and tax-generating benefits to communities.  These benefits can in turn be reflected in your corporate social responsibility (CSR) and environmental, social, and governance (ESG) reporting. This helps attract and retain customers who seek vendors who can produce even more than the obvious environmental benefits.
