In a time of economic pressure and revolutionary change, businesses need to maximize human capital in ways that are good for business. To support the sustainability of the business over the long-term, businesses need to plan for the future by forecasting their workforce needs. Businesses also need to create systems that effectively leverage internal talent by creating a leadership pipeline. Including employees with disabilities as part of workforce planning strategies and within the leadership pipeline, however, requires additional insight into the tools and resources that are available to businesses, to business leaders, and to employees.

This webcast will discuss:

  • Research on strategic workforce planning that outlines ways that businesses can plan for future workforce needs, especially in the leadership ranks.
  • The challenges associated with building a talent pipeline that includes employees with disabilities.
  • How businesses can develop and implement strategies for advancing the careers of employees with disabilities.
  • The tools that employees with disabilities may need to become a more significant part of the leadership pipeline.
