RecruitABILITY: Recruiting Employees with Disabilities

One in six Americans reports having a disability, yet individuals with disabilities are under-represented in the workplace. This session will explore ways to target an under-tapped employee population for recruitment, including resource groups and partnerships, accommodations in the recruitment process, and strategies for retention.


Learning Objectives

  • Learn about various resource groups and alternate talent acquisition strategies
  • Understand accommodations that may need to be made to current recruitment processes
  • Explore ways to retain individuals with disabilities
