Disability Awareness Working with People with Disabilities




People with disabilities represent a significant and largely underutilised resource for businesses. Many disabled persons are underemployed or unemployed. As a result of advocates for diversity, as well as a shrinking labour pool, employers are taking a serious look at hiring and retaining people with disabilities. This one-day workshop will give supervisors, managers and human resource consultants tools and tips for creating a diverse workplace.
