Advancing Disability Inclusion
Within the Workplace
Thoughts from the Director
Recently we sent out an employer survey to identify topics for our upcoming monthly webinars starting April 7. While reviewing the surveys, it seemed the topic of 'Recruiting Employees with Disabilities' was the subject of interest. Employers want to know where they can find qualified applicants with disabilities to hire. As I thought about this subject I realized there are many ways to begin this discussion. Recently I read an article called, ‘Confused on Where to Begin? Or How to Attract a Disability Workforce?’ that provides steps of creating an inclusive culture. Trying to include people with disabilities in your workforce goes beyond wishful thinking. It requires a plan that starts with a strategy, includes adjustments, and evaluates success. Enjoy this valuable and informative article that will provide you steps in creating an inclusive culture within your business.
