The global Office of Disability Inclusion (ODI) is dedicated to providing consistent standards and processes to better accommodate employees with disabilities, as well as better support employees who care for family members with disabilities. This includes ensuring we have the right tools, policies and procedures to promote an inclusive work environment.
JPMorgan Chase looks at the whole employee when they join the firm. We look first at what the individual can contribute to both our firm and clients. The firm makes it clear that we want people for their intellectual capacity and talent and we will do everything we can to accommodate them in a reasonable manner.
Our company has offices in more than 60 countries and reasonable accommodations are part of how we do business around the world. So, if a candidate has the talent and skills to do a job well, we want them. And, we will provide as many tools as we can to help them do their jobs to the best of their abilities.
Fun Fact: Did you know? We scored 100% on the Disability Equality Index (DEI). The DEI measures companies’ disability and inclusion policies and practices.
"Disability inclusion is no longer about automatic doors, curb cuts, ramps, and legislation. These historic efforts were essential at the time and represented the thinking and necessary change required for people with disabilities in the 20th Century.
Today, the new era of disability inclusion is about “assimilation” – – hiring professionals with disabilities into the robust culture of the firm. Full assimilation requires a leadership team with the will, commitment and attitude to identify, train and groom professionals with disabilities for leadership positions at the firm as we do with mainstream employees."
