Leveling the Playing Field for Employees with Disabilities
12 July, 2012 | (01 hr)
Every organization is looking to improve talent and enhance operating success. This extensive research report will demonstrate how making changes to improve opportunities for those with disabilities will improve the experience for all employees and contribute to company performance.
The webcast will discuss the leading practices discovered during the almost year-long research project, conducted with participation from member companies of The Conference Board and staff of Cornell’s Employment & Disability Institute. We will also review a measurement structure that can be used in most organizations and discuss the challenge of self-disclosure. The impact of these findings for employers looking to hire returning disabled veterans will also be highlighted.
In viewing, participants will:
- Learn the building blocks of a successful business case
- Explore the elements of organizational readiness
- Gain an appreciation of self-disclosure issues
- See a framework for measurement
Audience: Professionals involved with HR, Diversity & Inclusion, and Corporate Contributions
