Increasing Disability Inclusion: Centralized Accommodation Programs as a Best Practice
Today, companies increasingly understand that a diverse workforce inclusive of people with disabilities helps boost the bottom line through increased innovation, creativity and productivity. Key to fostering such a disability-inclusive workplace is effective policies and processes for providing reasonable accommodations. A best practice in this regard is the establishment of a centralized accommodation program (CAP). The purpose of a CAP is to consolidate in a single office or location subject matter expertise necessary to assess, evaluate and select effective and meaningful accommodations. A CAP may also consolidate funding streams for some or all accommodations at a level removed from the department or unit in which the individual is working. This webinar shares resources and information to help businesses of all sizes develop and support CAPs.
