What is the Seal of Approval?
 

The Disability-Aware Business Seal of Approval tells customers, clients and other businesses that your business is welcoming, flexible and friendly to people with disabilities.

Say the word "disability" and many business people limit their thinking to wheelchair ramps and braille elevator buttons. That's cool, but customers and employees with disabilities include a rapidly growing number of war veterans with brain trauma. And developmental disabilities like Autism and Down Syndrome. And aging Baby Boomers with dementia or Alzheimer's. People with disabilities are the fastest growing minority in the country with more than $200 billion in spending power! 

 

1 in 5 Americans has a disability.
That's $220 billion in discretionary income.

Why is it Good for Your Business?
 

The Disability-Aware Business Seal of Approval tells customers, clients and other businesses that your business is welcoming,flexible and friendly to people with disabilities.

 

Employees and customers touched by disability are loyal to businesses that include disability awareness in their best practices. For example, do you give a customer with a disability a little extra time to complete a transaction? Provide assistance or accommodation when needed? Talk directly to the person with a disability? With these, and other best practices, your business will be on the road to earning the jjslist.com Disability-Aware Business Seal of Approval.

 

Your business will benefit from reaching the fastest-growing minority in the country, their friends and families. That builds your reputation in the business community. That increases customer loyalty. That means more business. It's the smart move to make.
