Reimagining Diversity – Making People with Disabilities Part of Your Team

Wednesday, October 18, 2017, 2:00 PM - 3:00 PM ET

DirectEmployers Association is excited to announce one of their newest partners, Tangram Business Resourcing (TBR), corporate disability consultants. TBR works with companies of all sizes to establish the corporate culture, target and recruit skilled workers with disabilities, integrate them successfully into the workplace and establish the ongoing support needed to ensure that employees can contribute to the success of an organization. As a result, the business realizes many positive benefits through a disability-inclusive workforce.

On Wednesday, October 18, join Kathy Bernhardt, Managing Director of TBR, as she discusses common practices that may unintentionally weed out people with disabilities (PWD) during the sourcing, interviewing and selection processes. In addition, she will share best practices for hiring these valued individuals within your organization, including:

- How common hiring practices create barriers for PWD
- How to expand your network to recruit PWD
- How to ensure all parts of your hiring processes are accessible
- What your interviews should focus on

After the webinar, attendees will receive access to an exclusive white paper from Tangram titled, “Reimagining Diversity – Making People with Disabilities Part of Your Team.”
