Recruiting Strategies to Attract and Recruit Qualified Individuals with Disabilities

Education of incentives and supports

Business partners need to know where to go to learn more about the incentives and supports available to them as they work through the recruitment, hiring, promotion and termination process with individuals with disabilities. Once business feels confident that they know where to find trusted resources and support they will be more willing to take the perceived risks of hiring an individual with a disability. Some states have teams with their local Vocational Rehabilitation office that can provide training and support to business partners. Information shared should be tax credits, disability etiquette and basics, OJT/mentorship/internship options, local and national supports.
