NFP, a leading insurance broker and consultant providing property and casualty (P&C) solutions, employee benefits, retirement solutions and individual solutions, today announced Doug Hammond, its Chairman and CEO, joined the CEO Commission for the Employment of People with Disabilities. The mission of the organization, founded by The National Down Syndrome Society, Voya Financial, and the Society for Human Resources Management (SHRM), is to raise awareness of the untapped potential of people with disabilities and to work to ensure that people with disabilities obtain and maintain equal access to meaningful employment.

“I joined the CEO Commission because I share their vision to remove barriers to employment equality and actively collaborate to tackle unemployment and underemployment among people with disabilities,” said Hammond. “With only 17.5% of people with disabilities in employment, we have a tremendous opportunity to connect with this pool of talented people, introduce them to our organizations and create avenues to benefit from their contributions. “

“Our partnership with the CEO Commission is just one of the programs that support our focus on improving a workplace dedicated to diversity, equity, inclusion and belonging,” added Pamela wheeler, Head of Diversity and Inclusion at NFP. “It starts by recognizing that everyone can contribute and continues by empowering NFP leaders to create opportunities that match the objectives of the Commission. “

“As companies look at their bottom line, including more people with disabilities not only makes business sense, but also opens up opportunities for more people,” said Kandi pickard, The National Down Syndrome Society President and CEO.
