Employers around the world are concerned about how to increase the pool of available, qualified talent.  A soon to be released Research Working Group report Leveling the Playing Field: Attracting, Engaging, and Advancing People with Disabilities, explores a variety of strategies and leading practices to help employers better leverage this population. One part of the RWGs discussion was on the challenge global employers have in meeting multiple national requirements regarding employees with disabilities. This webcast will explore both how these two leading companies have worked to level their playing field as well as their experience as a global employer. 

The panelists will discuss: 

  • What strategies are their companies using to “Level the Playing Field” for people  with disabilities
  • How similar are the challenges around the recruiting, hiring and retention of people with disabilities from country to country
  • What role do federal requirements play in their hiring strategies
  • What are the key drivers in their organization for increasing participation of people with disabilities 

Who should attend

The webcast is appropriate for executives in the following areas:

  • Human Resources
  • Diversity and Inclusion
  • Talent Management
  • Strategic Workforce Planning
  • Managers

Anyone with responsibility for recruitment, on-boarding, general management/development, diversity and inclusion or are interested in understanding how to better engage employees or perspective employees with disabilities.
