Think Beyond The Label (TBTL) is a public-private partnership that delivers information, outreach and resources to businesses, job seekers and the public workforce system to ensure greater recruiting and hiring opportunities for job candidates with disabilities.

The organization's purpose is to inform, connect and communicate with all stakeholders in the disability and employment system to create a more inclusive workforce. TBTL offers a network and digital hub that provides access to qualified job candidates and public resources to enable employers to find and recruit the talent. TBTL offers a range of business-specific tools[1] that build the case for hiring workers with disabilities. The organization also gives job seekers access a range of opportunities available to them, from public employment system resources to private sector job leads, including a jobs portal[2] where job seekers can become part of a national pool of candidates actively being sought out by our network of businesses and the public workforce system.
