Release of OPM’s Online Course: “A Roadmap to Success: Hiring, Retaining and Including People with Disabilities”

Posted by Alexandra Kielty - On July 28, 2014 (EST)

The Office of Personnel Management (OPM) has issued a memorandum to the Chief Human Capital Officers on July 27, 2014, to promote hiring of people with disabilities in the Federal Government. On July 26, 2010, President Obama issued Executive Order (E.O.) 13548 on Increasing Federal Employment of Individuals with Disabilities, to mark the historic 20th anniversary of the signing of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA). E.O. 13548 says that the Federal Government, as the Nation's largest employer, must become a model for the employment of individuals with disabilities. In continued support of E.O. 13548, OPM, in consultation with partner agencies, has developed an online course entitled, “A Roadmap to Success: Hiring, Retaining and Including People with Disabilities.” This course will provide Federal employees with basic information and resources to successfully hire, retain, and advance employees with disabilities. OPM is making this course available to agencies at no cost on HR University.
