About This Session
There are a wealth of resources available when it comes to understanding, recruiting and retaining individuals with disabilities, you just have to know where to begin. Let us walk you through the working lifecycle of an individual with a disability where we’ll discuss recruiting and hiring these individuals, reducing common fears managers have and providing the proper accommodations, resources and education needed to establish successful career paths. We will also discuss the shift in recruiting millennials with disabilities, their expectations and how you can work to meet those expectations and establish a diverse workforce inclusive of individuals with disabilities.
