Workplace inclusion spurs innovation.

A work environment where all individuals have equal access to opportunities and resources creates a new breed of business. Where other companies strive for equity, your business can focus on the bigger picture. Where other companies keep producing the same results, yours can push the boundaries. The BVI Workforce Innovation Center can help get you there.

Our experts review the accessibility of your workplace.

With a significant rise in ADA lawsuits in retail stores and other public spaces, workplace accessibility is a relevant topic. Ensuring your workplace is accessible for anyone with a disability not only protects you from litigation, but also makes the environment better for all your employees. In fact, many improvements made to support people with disabilities also typically improve the experience of someone who is typically abled.
