Your Local Chamber of Commerce will Want to Learn ADA Compliance

Posted September 16, 2013

There are many reasons that businesses in your community will want to learn more about ADA compliance. Not only is being complaint a way to give back, it's also a way for businesses to make the community a better place overall.

Reason 1: Businesses are Always Looking to Contribute to the Greater Good

According to current statistics, corporations (including corporate foundations) give about $14.9 million to non-profit organizations and charities every year. In addition:

  • Some corporations just love to give for the good PR, free advertising and tax perks it can bring.
  • Some businesses just enjoy being part of their community, and want to do positive things while their businesses thrives within it.

Reason 2: Businesses are Always Looking for More Customers

Making an establishment ADA compliant means that more customers will have access to its products or services. For this reason, installing vertical lifts, handicap elevators and commercial wheelchair lifts is a no-brainer for any business owner.

Reason 3: Businesses are Always Looking for Reliable Staff Members

Disabled people are an asset to the US workforce. According to recent statistics, around 12% of the US population has a disability. 11.8% of those individuals have completed some college education or have an associate degree, while 7.1% have a bachelor's degree or higher. In addition, many disabled people do have the physical capacity to complete many tasks. They also want to work to earn money and contribute to a workplace environment. It's often a rewarding arrangement for both employer and employee.

Reason 4: Businesses are Always Looking to do Great Things Without it Being a Big Hassle

The word turn-key is often music to an entrepreneur's, manager's or CEO's ears, especially when it means he has access to something really stupendous without having to make any changes to his normal routine. Most companies in the business of selling ADA compliant merchandise are well-versed in the process of change and really want to help the disabled by making those changes happen.

Once the business' decision maker chooses to make these positive changes, there will be many people involved in helping him or her, in order to make the process as simple as possible.
