Hiring and retaining qualified employees is the number one staffing issue cited by employers—a concern that will become more pressing as we begin to feel the crunch of a shrinking and aging workforce. To remain competitive, employers are looking beyond the traditional labor sources to access skilled, qualified candidates. This includes focusing their recruitment efforts on alternative sources of available job candidates, including those who are traditionally under-represented.
Many employers, especially small to medium businesses, genuinely want to hire more people with disabilities, but they need resources to help them understand if it's profitable, accommodations, and other questions that arise. They don't have the extra time to figure out where to access qualified candidates with disabilities. These resources are available on this website and if you have more questions you can contact our staff.
