Bender Consulting Services is a national leader in the employment of people with disabilities. Bender specializes in aligning public and private sector employers with talented employees with disabilities in support of their overall disability recruitment initiatives. We have experience in recruitment, hiring, and workplace mentoring of individuals with disabilities, disability employment strategy and training, and accessible technology solutions.

Joyce Bender, CEO, is a recognized expert in disability employment and has over 30 years of experience in employment, recruitment, and executive search. As a businesswoman with disabilities, Joyce understands the importance of hiring employees that will bring value to your company.  As of August 2014, the unemployment rate for people with disabilities was more than twice that of people without disabilities. We partner with companies to assist them with reaching into this historically untapped labor pool of eager, skilled, and reliable early career professionals to recruit and hire the resources that best meet the needs of their company.

When working with Bender Consulting Services to fulfill your disability recruitment strategies, meeting newly enforced regulations issued by the Office of Federal Contract Compliance Programs concerning the hiring of people with disabilities and veterans (Section 503 and VEVRAA), the hiring of people with disabilities becomes a sound business decision. At Bender, we will show you how your commitment to inclusion and diversity helps your company to be competitive by delivering innovative solutions to your clients, stakeholders, or the constituencies you serve.
