Our purpose is to match incredibly talented, productive, and loyal homebound people with employers that believe in equality and inclusion, while also realizing the benefits of having a skilled and diverse workforce.
Knowing how to work from home in the most effective and efficient ways, homebound people can often be even more productive and creative than those able to commute. Inclusion creates diversity, and there are numerous studies that clearly show that the more diverse a company is, the more profitable it can be.
Unbound Life was formed by Vishal Patel because of his personal experience in being homebound for many years. Take 2 minutes to watch Vishal’s remarkable story.
A Flawed System
People who are Homebound due to any kind of disability are often overlooked when it comes to their ability to perform work and to contribute to society. Even if they can find work, an 85-year-old law allows employers to pay them less than the minimum wage which is unethical and a travesty.
A Study Of 150 US Companies
An average of 30% greater economic profit margins, 28% higher revenue, and twice the net income is realized when compared to their industry peers by offering an inclusive working environment for disabled employees.
New Workspace Expectations
Owl Labs’ 2020 annual State of Remote Work report shows that out of the 70% of workers in the US who worked from home 75% said they were more productive, 1 in 5 of the survey respondents reported working more and 81% think their employer will support remote work even after the pandemic.
Failing Federal System
In October of 2020 The National Council on Disability an advisory agency published a report on the 82 year old AbilityOne program finding it is completely out of sync with todays policies. Historical data showed that is an ineffective system to mobilize workforces and program even raises questions on exploitation through subminimum wages.
- The human spirit has no bounds and when people are able to tap into theirs, they can achieve remarkable things
