NEW! Employer Lunch and Learn: The Myths and Benefits of Hiring Persons with Disabilities
With Employment Specialists Tara Thom Burnett and Melissa Hejja
Tuesday, August 23 at 11:00 a.m. Pacific (2:00 p.m. Eastern)
In Canada, 3.7 million (or 20%) of working age adults (25 to 64 years) are reported to have one or more disabilities. Among those aged 25 to 64 years, persons with disabilities were less likely to be employed (59%) than those without disabilities (80%). This remains the case despite numerous positive outcomes and success stories reported by employers across the country. Often, employers are hesitant to hire a person with a disability due to a lack of information. If you are an employer who would like to diversify your staff by tapping into an underrepresented, aspiring, and talented group of individuals, this webinar is for you. Please join us in this informative session as our employment specialists, Tara and Melissa will discuss the myths and benefits of hiring a person with a disability, costs of accommodation, return on investment, and much more.
