A government agency can help you find talented, dedicated workers who also have disabilities. (NAPS)
(NAPSI)—Employers looking for qualified and highly skilled workers
may be missing out on an untapped talent pool-people with disabilities.
Individuals with disabilities can offer employers a competitive edge, helping
diversify and strengthen their workplaces through creativity, innovation and
proven problem solving. They are also dedicated—studies show that
employees with disabilities stay at jobs longer—thus reducing the time
and cost involved in retraining and replacing personnel.
Employers interested in learning more about hiring people with
disabilities can turn to the Employer Assistance and Resource Network on
Disability Inclusion (EARN) for help. EARN is a free service that offers
information to help employers of all sizes and across all industries,
including small businesses and federal contractors, tap the benefits of
employing people with disabilities and create disability-inclusive
workplaces. EARN’s website, AskEARN.org,
has information on topics such as disability recruitment and hiring,
retention and advancement, laws and regulations, and workplace accessibility.
There’s also a Guide to Disability Inclusion in the Workplace and
information on where to find job candidates with disabilities.
EARN is funded by the U.S. Department of Labor’s Office of
Disability Employment Policy.
