    According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, did you know only 19.3% of persons with a disability were employed in 2019? What does that number tell us?! That there’s a great deal of talent available to fill your openings!

    We all know untapped resources for talent exist including individuals with minor challenges and disabilities. With a little support, e.g. an accommodation, these individuals can provide tremendous contributions to an organization. As HR Pros, it is especially important for us to consider expanding our outreach efforts and recognize the benefits of hiring those who may need a reasonable accommodation.

    Join us for this one-hour, live interactive HR Community event approved for 1 SHRM professional development credit (PDC) and 1 HRCI recertification credit. We’ll discuss the legal landscape including applicant rights. We’ll also review how to get started and how best to gain leadership buy-in.

    Ask yourself, are you open to reasonable accommodations? Let’s talk about it!
