Closing the Gaps: Qualtrics is a Best Place to Work for Disability Inclusion

Today Qualtrics was certified as a Best Place to Work for Disability Inclusion by the Disability Equality Index (DEI). The Disability Equality Index is a comprehensive benchmarking tool that helps companies build a roadmap of measurable, tangible actions that they can take to achieve disability inclusion and equality.

The DEI is a joint initiative of the American Association of People with Disabilities (AAPD), the nation’s largest disability rights organization, and Disability:IN, the global business disability inclusion network, to collectively advance the inclusion of people with disabilities. 

They provide a rating based on criteria that includes: culture, leadership, benefits, recruitment, accommodations, community, and supplier diversity. We scored an 80/100, which means we are certified as one of the Best Places to Work for Disability Inclusion.

This accomplishment would not have been possible without the help of our employee resource group, Q&Able.

Q&Able’s mission is to enable everyone — regardless of ability — to do more. How do we do that? We’re problem solvers. Bring us your obstacles, bring us your ideas, and together we’ll find a way over, around, or through whatever struggle is holding you back from doing your best work.

We are proud and honored to make the top scorer list and to be a part of this important group of businesses and we are also grateful for the areas outlined where we can improve.

Laura of Q&Able has a goal for us. “We challenge everyone to consider the role of accessibility as they respond to the needs of customers, teams, and peers. This certification is a great milestone for the progress we’ve made and a reminder that there’s plenty of work that still needs to be done.”

We challenge everyone to consider the role of accessibility as they respond to the needs of customers, teams, and peers.

Our continued efforts to support disability equality and inclusion in and outside of our company are part of who we are, but we know there are still gaps to close.

With the important work of Q&Able, feedback from our team members, and our commitment to recognizing and fixing issues that people with disabilities face in the workplace, we are confident that we can continue to make a difference in the everyday experiences of our team members.
