Nestlé Health Science Named A “Best Place to Work for People with Disabilities”
Leading U.S. disability organizations recognize top companies fostering a diverse and inclusive workplace
Nestlé Health Science has been recognized as one of the “2023 Best Places to Work for People with Disabilities” by the American Association of People with Disabilities (AAPD), the nation’s largest disability rights organization, and Disability:IN, the global business disability inclusion network.
The ranking is sourced from the Disability Equality Index® (DEI), the world’s most comprehensive benchmarking tool to measure disability workplace inclusion against competitors.
"These top-scoring companies understand deeply that people with disabilities represent a tremendous source of talent and innovation for their workforce and market share for their brands, and they are trailblazers in our journey towards full disability inclusion in business," said Maria Town, President and CEO of AAPD.
Originally created by the DEI Advisory Committee, a diverse group of business leaders, policy experts and disability advocates, the DEI exists to help businesses make a positive impact on the unemployment/underemployment of people with disabilities.
