Jabil Earns Top Score in 2021 Disability Equality Index
Jabil had been recognized as a “Best Place to Work for Disability Inclusion” by Disability:IN after receiving a score of 100 on the 2021 Disability Equality Index (DEI)®. The DEI, a comprehensive benchmarking tool used to measure a company’s efforts around disability inclusion and equality, was created by Disability:IN and the American Association of People with Disabilities (AAPD).
To participate in the index, companies provided information on their policies and practices in the areas of: culture and leadership; enterprise-wide access; employment practices (benefits, recruitment, employment, education, retention and advancement, accommodations); community engagement; supplier diversity; and non-U.S. operations. New this year, questions about innovative technology to advance digital and remote accessibility, mental wellness benefits, services for deaf and hard of hearing employees and flexible work options were asked, in response to the global pandemic.
