January 14, 2015. JAN Webcast: Recruiting, Hiring, and Retaining Individuals with Disabilities

  • Description: Your agency can increase the participation rate of individuals with disabilities, even with budget constraints, hiring freezes, and the potential for RIFs. Stephen will share best practices to help you move that needle in your agency, as well as review the Rehabilitation Act and the policies you need to be aware of so you are in compliance with the requirements of Executive Order 13548. An extensive resource list and sample documents regarding Schedule A recruiting and reasonable accommodation procedures will also be provided.
  • Speaker: Stephen King, Director, Computer/Electronic Accommodations Program (CAP), Department of Defense.

  • Description: Research indicates that welcoming and safe workplaces that offer work-life balance and take precautions against violent behavior are beneficial to employers’ bottom lines through increased employee productivity, health and engagement. This webinar will feature expert speakers from federal and federally funded technical assistance centers who will discuss key considerations for implementing safe and productive workplaces. It will also highlight how fostering such workplaces—ones where employees feel comfortable disclosing disabilities and health concerns without fear, stigma or worry—allows all employees to receive the productivity tools (also known as reasonable accommodations) and supports they need to optimize their performance and deliver on the job.
