Description: A FREE EARN Webinar
The U.S. Department of Labor’s Office of Disability Employment Policy recently published “Business Strategies that Work: A Framework for Disability Inclusion.” This guide for employers focuses on policies and practices for recruiting, hiring, retaining, and advancing qualified individuals with disabilities and ensuring that the workplace is truly diverse and inclusive. It is organized into seven action areas.
This webinar focuses on the action area that most employers, public and private, report is critical to initiating or refining policies and practices for proactively recruiting and hiring qualified people with disabilities. Building the pipeline requires effective outreach practices and strategic recruiting strategies. During this webinar you will learn about building relationships with academic and community organizations, developing internal developmental programs and policies, specific talent resourcing, and the value of formal tracking and reporting procedures.
HRCI credits will be available to webinar participants.
