Abstract Details for Hiring Ohioans with Disabilities: A Toolkit for Employers, Managers and Human Resource Professionals

This interactive guide is designed to be a helpful reference for human resource professionals, recruiters, training providers, managers, business owners, executives and anyone else interested in recruiting, hiring and retaining workers with disabilities. The tabs at right are arranged sequentially. If you’ve never hired workers with disabilities and you would like more information about the many benefits of doing so, start with “Building the Business Case” Next, “Recruiting, Hiring and Retaining” can quickly and easily connect you to all the information and resources you need to create and retain a more inclusive workplace. You’ll learn about sources of peer support, training opportunities, and proven strategies for attracting qualified workers. The “Workplace Accommodations” section is filled with simple ideas for creating a work environment conducive to all your employees’ success. “Veterans’ Resources” has information and supports for employers committed to hiring veterans. Finally, “Ohio’s Workforce Integration Task Force” explains how and why this toolkit came to be. If you have questions about anything you find in the toolkit, please email HiringAbility@ood.ohio.gov. The toolkit will be revised periodically based on feedback from users.
