People with disabilities are engaged in the
workforce in larger numbers than ever. It is critical
that HR professionals are the organizational experts
filling two very different roles when bringing people
with disabilities into their workforce.
The recruitment / hiring phase requires all employees
involved in the interview process are prepared to successfully
accommodate disabilities. Retaining people with disabilities
results from successfully tapping their talents and
helping them become a part of the organization.
Co-workers and supervisors who have not worked with
a person with disabilities look to their HR professional
for guidance and support as they integrate their new
staff member into their organization.
VESID offers a number of free and subsidized support
systems that minimize the employer's financial and legal
exposure while creating the most comfortable work environment,
not only for the disabled employee but for their co-workers
as well. This workshop allows you to learn from their
powerful experiences and expertise. They regularly
help HR professionals recruit, hire and accommodate
the disabled worker's needs. We will learn from
the experiences of many Rochester area employers and
you will leave fully prepared to engage persons with
disabilities in your workplace.
Join dozens of HR colleagues in this important workshop
where you will learn to successfully lead these HR processes.
You'll also learn of the wide variety of valuable services
area organizations offer you in assuring your company
benefits from the talents and abilities of all employees.
