Disability and employers

A virtual training that shows why hiring people with disabilities is good for business is being offered to New York employers.

Launched by the Office for People with Developmental Disabilities (OPWDD) and called “EmployAbility: Benefits of Hiring People with Disabilities,” its creation was signed into law by Governor Hochul last year. Its goal is to help educate employers about the benefits of diversifying their workforce.

The first training, free and available to any New York employer, will be held on Oct. 24, with more offerings planned in the future. Learn why hiring people of all abilities is good for your business and take the critical first step toward finding qualified employees who can diversify your workforce and improve your bottom line.

You’ll learn about the associated tax credits, strategies to hire and support employees with disabilities,  receive info on reasonable accommodations, and much more.

The training’s launch comes during National Disability Employment Awareness Month (NDEAM).
