Building Strong Organizations
Target Audience: Professionals
The Arc@Work is leading the way in developing innovative workforce solutions for the government and private sector by connecting employers with talented employees with intellectual and developmental disabilities and supporting the recruitment, on-boarding, and retention process. Our goal is to connect organizations with people and services that increase the diversity, productivity, and quality of their overall workforce.
This session will focus on the products and services The Arc@Work provides to employers across the US to successfully on-board and retain talented individuals with I/DD, research conducted at Georgetown University on Strategic Corporate Social Responsibility (SCSR) initiatives, how chapters can leverage business entrepreneurship to support the hiring of individuals with I/DD, and the return on investment (ROI) corporations see when successfully implementing disability hiring programs.
