I have more than 45 years of business experience (10 of them at the vice presidential level for a Fortune 500 company). I'm also a person with lifelong cerebral palsy.
Based on my background, my short answer to the question of finding dependable employees who will stay with you is this: 

Seek disability-honed accomplishment in the job candidates you interview and add them to your team.

By recruiting, hiring and retaining people with disabilities – the 13 percent of the U.S. total labor market which is largely untapped by your competitors but packed with accomplishing  and perfectly able (and dependable) individuals -- you'll be doing yourself (and your company) a favor.

You'll reduce your employee turnover rate because they're less likely to jump ship every two years.

You need dependable employees -- those with talent who will stick with you. But you can't always find them.

To reduce your employee turnover rate, you know what you need to do:

  • Hire those who match your corporate culture and vision.
  • Compensate them fairly.
  • Provide established career paths within your company.
  • Give them a voice in decision making.

As a result, you’ll have:

  • Less work.
  • Fewer hassles.
  • Higher productivity for your team. 
  • More career opportunities for yourself.

    But, how do you find dependable employees who will stay on the job for more than two years?
