Webinar Highlights

In a time of economic pressure and revolutionary change, leading companies are continuing to focus on the future by maximizing human capital in ways that are good for business. To accomplish this, some companies have customized their human capital practices to address the value in employing people from different backgrounds and they are developing partnerships with organizations that are dedicated to recruiting workers with diverse perspectives. In this webcast, we investigate best practices for maximizing recruitment strategies for one particular group of employees: those with disabilities.

This webcast will discuss:

  • Recent research that indicates that new recruits today simply are not prepared to work.
  • Results from the just-released (01/09) Department of Labor/ODEP report that surveys employers' actions and attitudes toward employing people with disabilities today.
  • Recommendations for businesses that seek to hire employees with disabilities, including those from the younger generations.
