Report – Ready and Able: Addressing Labor Market Needs and Building Productive Careers for People with Disabilities Through Collaborative Approaches

People with disabilities can work and want to work. Given the growing body of evidence that demonstrates that workers with disabilities meet or exceed the job performance of co-workers without disabilities, the continuing high unemployment rate and low labor force participation rate of people with disabilities deprive the nation of a valuable pool of talent. Increasing the employment of people with disabilities produces significant benefits to the economy, the nation, and people with disabilities themselves.

Connecting with the Business Sector on the Advantages of a Diverse and Inclusive Workforce (Recorded Webinar and Related Resources)

“Diversity” may often be associated solely with individuals who represent multi-cultural minority groups. However, it is representative of individuals who exhibit a myriad of unique and differing attributes, characteristics and life experiences. Diversity is evident in aspects of race, culture, religion, age, language, gender, disabilities, sexual orientation, class and any traits which make us different from one another. Along with the nation’s growing diversity is a rise in globalization, in which communities, cultures and economies around the world have become more interconnected through the expansion of technology, communication and trade. As a result, all types of associations and the public sector must aim for the highest quality and most effective workforce to compete in a global marketplace.

EARN Employer Accommodations / Productivity Enhancements

Employer Assistance and Resource Network (EARN) has released information on accommodation enhancements and tools that employers can utilize for their employees with disabilities. All employees need the right tools and work environment to effectively perform their jobs. Similarly, people with disabilities may need workplace adjustments, or accommodations, to maximize their productivity. Having a clear process for requesting and providing accommodations is an easy step small businesses can take to send a clear signal about their commitment to a disability-inclusive workforce. Whether they realize it or not, accommodations are something most employers provide—to employees both with and without disabilities—every day. They span the tangible, such as certain technologies or special chairs or desks, to the non-tangible, such as a flexible schedule or the opportunity to telecommute. Regardless, most accommodations are no or low cost, while yielding considerable direct and indirect benefits through increased retention and productivity. To access more information on approaches employers can utilize, please click on View Page Now.

EARN Webinar — Do Ask, Do Tell: Tapping the Power of Disability Diversity & Encouraging Self-Identification

This webinar is sponsored by Employer Assistance and Resource Network (EARN) and will be held on Thursday, February 18, from 3:00-4:30 PM ET. In recent years, corporate America has undergone significant shifts in how it talks about disability and employment, with leading companies now actively incorporating it into their workforce diversity and inclusion goals. In 2014, updates to Section 503 of the Rehabilitation Act added further impetus to these shifts by strengthening federal contractors' responsibilities to take affirmative action to recruit and retain qualified people with disabilities. One major component of these updates is the requirement that federal contractors invite applicants and employees to voluntarily self-identify as people with disabilities. This webinar will address strategies for achieving disability inclusion goals by encouraging employees to understand the value of self-identifying. It is targeted at federal contractors and other companies interested in fostering a disability-inclusive work culture. To register for this webinar, please click on View Page Now.

Issue Brief: Employment Programs for Transition-Age Youth with Disabilities that Feature Vocational Rehabilitation Services and Supports: A Literature Review

The Rehabilitation Research and Training Center (RRTC) on Vocational Rehabilitation Practices and Youth issued this brief in December 2016. It addresses Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act (wIOA) of 2014 that requires state vocational rehabilitation agencies to change the way they work with transition-age youth, including resource allocation, service provision, and outcome tracking. This issue brief summarizes findings from a search of the peer reviewed and grey literatures for employment-focused transition programs that featured vocational rehabilitation services. Our search found just seven programs across the studies meeting the criteria for inclusion. All seven programs focused on a well-defined population of youth and had varied service models, but all featured interagency collaboration.
