Maximum Ability: How to Recruit and Retain employees with (Dis)abilities.

Monday 2:00 – 3:00 PM

Session Description

This program goes beyond ADA and helps participants understand the personal, social, and medical needs of persons with (dis)abilities. This helps to create inclusive workplaces that attract and retain talent. This is increasingly important as 1 in 4 Americans has a (dis)ability in some form, over 50% of employees will have a (dis)ability before retirement, and that (dis)ability related claims are third highest amongst EEOC claims.
