An Inclusive Employer is an employer who includes an individual with a disability as an equal employee. These Employers see the ability in the person and not their disability. The employee is paid an equal wage, given equal opportunities and is considered an integral part of the employment team. The employees were very proud to honour their employers with a certificate and a window decal identifying them as inclusive employers. Horizons Centre appreciates the commitment of these employers to build and support an inclusive workforce.
