Presented by TransCen, Inc. and the Mid-Atlantic ADA Center
As many employers struggle to find qualified candidates for open positions, frequently they shy away from a major untapped source: people with disabilities. In recognition of National Disability Employment Awareness Month (NDEAM), listen to this 60 minute webinar as TransCen, Inc. President, Laura Owens and Mid-Atlantic ADA Center Director, Marian Vessels discuss why hiring a qualified worker with a disability makes good business sense. Learn some of the benefits employers have reported after employing people with disabilities and resources for finding and accommodating this valuable pool of talent.
