Recruiting Strategies to Attract and Recruit Qualified Individuals with Disabilities

Employers need a Comprehensive Plan

Most employers do a good job in formulating their strategy to attract individuals with disabilities. Also most leave out an important factor in my opinion. That is the psychological aspect of having a disability.


From my experience, it is very difficult for a person with a disability to self identify. They feel it is demonstrating a weakness. Secondly, even if a person self identifies, asking for an accommodation is something in their mind that shows even a greater weakness. I have been told by many who call our organization for guidance that being in a work environment with a visible disability makes them feel insecure. I would like employers to understand that and find a way to assist. Just thinking out loud.
