Now is the perfect time to take action during the COVID 19 crisis to hire and retain people with disabilities.

COVID-19 has changed how organizations view work from home efforts, making accommodations for their workforce, and being flexible in a changing time. As many organizations have experienced layoffs and furloughs, they are looking to create the right, dynamic, and diverse team as they rebuild their workforce. Learn NOW how to set strategies, implement best practices, on-board in an inclusive way, and eliminate the misperceptions surrounding accommodations. Finally, feel comfortable knowing how to provide performance management in an inclusive style. If you are ready to take the next step, this is the session for you to attend!

This workshop will cover:
  • COVID19 and the positive impact on hiring those with disabilities
  • 30th Anniversary of ADA – then and now
  • Learn effective strategies and resources to support your outreach and recruitment efforts
  • Best practices for interviewing those with various disabilities
  • Learn about strategies for on-boarding that facilitates inclusion for all
  • What is an accommodation?  Learn when and how to accommodate
  • Performance management in an inclusive style
