ASA Offers Resources to Help Firms Increase Disability Inclusion in Staffing

ASA—in conjunction with the U.S. Department of Labor’s Office of Disability Employment Policy—has developed a website of tools to help employers make their businesses more inclusive for talent with disabilities. The site includes resources on best practices for recruiting, hiring, retaining, and advancing talent with disabilities; what employers need to know about managing a diverse workforce that includes people with disabilities; and ways employers can promote disability inclusion in their internal and external communications.

It also provides information on commonsense workplace changes that result in more digitally accessible workplaces. This is another initiative in the joint effort between ASA and ODEP, which signed an alliance in May 2020 to advance the employment of people with disabilities in the staffing, recruiting, and workforce solutions industries.
