MT|SHRM, in partnership with TennesseeWorks, presents our inaugural CapABILITY Career Expo on Wednesday, May 20, from 3:00-7:30 p.m. at the Nashville Airport Marriott.  This career expo will provide a forum for Middle Tennessee employers and the disabled/disabled veterans communities to come together to discuss careers and job openings.

Why Exhibit at the CapABILITY CAREER EXPO?

  • 87% of customers prefer to do business with companies that employ people with disabilities.
  • Employees with disabilities have lower or equal turnover and absentee rates than employees without disabilities.
  • Businesses that hire people with disabilities qualify for certain financial incentives.
  • Employers who are federal contractors now have a 7% utilization goal for employing qualified individuals with disabilities.
  • People with disabilities contribute to diversity, and businesses can enhance their competitive edge by taking steps to ensure they are integrated into their workforce.
