Companies doing business with the US government have a new mandate as of March 24, 2014: people with disabilities (PWDs) must represent at least 7 percent of job applicants and 7 percent of every job group.
New research from The Conference Board shows what companies are doing today to build a disability-inclusive culture. Hear Prudential’s strategy for achieving this while also meeting the new federal requirements for government contractors.
While 20 percent of workers will have a disability during their career, disclosing it in the workplace can be risky. Are PWDs more likely to self-identify in organizations that have a disability-inclusive culture?
This webcast was developed by The Conference Board (TCB) in collaboration with the Employer Assistance and Resource Network (EARN) funded by the USDOL Office of Disability and Employment Policy (ODEP).
This webcast will be captioned for those who are deaf or hard of hearing.
