Recruiting: Workers with Disabilities: Where can I access employers who have had successful experiences hiring people with disabilities?


The U.S. Business Leadership Network (USBLN) is the national business organization currently representing BLN chapters in 32 states and more than 5,000 employers using a “business-to-business” strategy to promote the business imperative of including people with disabilities in the workforce. The BLNs provide an opportunity for employers to identify and share best practices on the employment of people with disabilities. The Office of Disability Employment Policy (ODEP) endorses the BLN concept of business-to-business mentoring to help create job opportunities for people with disabilities.

Other sources for information about successful employment practices are committees, councils or commissions on employment of people with disabilities in each state. Contact information for your state can be found on the State Liaisons section of the ODEP web site.
