The Broward Business Leadership Network (BBLN) is a network of employers who educate and support businesses in a peer relationship in order to hire, retain and improve customer services for people with disabilities.
To strengthen our region such that all businesses recognize the benefits of hiring, retaining and for promoting inclusion for people with disabilities.
Values Statement/Guiding Principles:
The Broward Business Leadership Network (BBLN) is an employer-to-employer network with acommon vision of increasing workforce diversity through the recruitment and hiring of qualified workers with disabilities. Businesses need workers and people with disabilities are an untapped source of dependable employees.
A diverse workforce is vital to business success. Approximately one in five Floridians has a disability. By hiring people with disabilities, Broward’s employers can effectively position themselves to develop products and services that are more likely to sell to a diverse customer base, resulting in significant increases in long-term profits. The BBLN is committed to helping your business achieve diversity through the employment of qualified people with disabilities, assisting your business with technical expertise in qualifying for and learning more about services, programs and incentives that assist employers in saving money and increasing their bottom line.
The BBLN was founded to assist employers in finding and retaining good employees who will help build the current business’ bottom line by provision of excellent services and achieving or exceeding current production standards. These employers have learned to look at the person’s abilities first and not at their disabilities. Companies, both large and small, have found that it is good business to hire people with disabilities. Over the years, the BBLN has provided several seminars for employers with Human Resource Certification Institute Continuing Education Credit for re-certification.
