Busey Named a 2022 Leading Disability Employer

Award Recognizes Companies that Advance People with Disabilities in its Workforce

Busey is proud to announce it has been recognized as a 2022 Leading Disability Employer by the National Organization on Disability (NOD). This highly selective award is given to only the top performing companies demonstrating positive outcomes in recruiting, hiring, retaining and advancing people with disabilities in their workforces.

“Congratulations to all the 2022 Leading Disability Employers for creating an inclusive and diverse workplace that allows people with disabilities to be successful,” said NOD President Carol Glazer. “NOD’s mission is to ensure that no ability is wasted, that all Americans, including those of us with disabilities, have an opportunity for enterprise, achievement and earnings and that corporate America knows how to put our talents to work. These winning organizations have stepped up and are doing just that. We want to applaud their leadership and thank them for their commitment to hiring and retaining people with disabilities.”

Winners of the Leading Disability Employer award are determined based on data provided by companies on the NOD Employment Tracker™, the only assessment tool available that focuses on the workforce, to help companies evaluate their disability inclusion policies and practices. Organizations wanting to compete for the NOD Leading Disability Employer Seal voluntarily opt in to be considered. Those companies’ responses are scored, taking into account both disability employment practices and performance. Scoring prioritizes practices that are associated with increased disability employment outcomes over time, and companies receive additional points based on the percentage of people with disabilities in their workforce.

As a 2022 award recipient, Busey was invited to NOD’s Annual Forum on September 29, in Washington, D.C. where the organization publicly announced and celebrated all award winners.
