Employees with Disabilities:
A Different Point of View
Like any organization of our size, Mayo Clinic has many team members with visible and invisible disabilities. You bring unique insight into the experiences of so many patients, colleagues and members of our community. At Mayo Clinic, our diverse workforce encompasses more viewpoints, thoughts, and ideas to help solve the many challenges of today's health care environment.
Through a variety of partnerships and career fairs, we are always seeking qualified talent to help serve our patients. Resources like the Disability MERG are here to help you make the transition to a life-changing career.
For you, Mayo Clinic offers an opportunity to make an impact—personally, professionally, and in the world we all share.
Mayo Clinic named as a “Best Places to Work for Disability Inclusion”
This is the fifth year Mayo Clinic received a top score on the Disability Equality Index (DEI) thus recognized as a “Best Place to Work for Disability Inclusion.” Utilized by 247 Fortune 500 and Fortune 1000 corporations in 2022, the DEI tool benchmarks a corporation’s disability inclusion efforts. The 2022 DEI measured areas such as culture and leadership, enterprise-wide accessibility, employment practices, community engagement and supplier diversity.
Our Disability MERG (Mayo Employee Resource Group) aligns perfectly with Mayo Clinic values, working to make positive changes in the lives of employees, families and patients with visible and invisible disabilities. Our aim is to retain and develop current employees, recruit new talent, and remove barriers to inclusivity.
We are committed to reasonable accommodations in jobs or work environments that help employees perform their fundamental duties. Mayo Clinic has staff with expertise in medical and vocational management of disabilities, as well as compliance with state and federal legislation such as the Family and Medical Leave Act, Americans with Disabilities Act, Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, Occupational Safety and Health Act, Minnesota Human Rights Act, and workers' compensation statutes.
We’re proud to work with some excellent organizations to promote inclusion and accessibility, both at Mayo Clinic and in our communities.
