For Immediate Release
(Alexandria, Va., October 27, 2006) The Office of Disability Employment Policy of the U. S. Department of Labor and the Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM) signed an agreement yesterday establishing an Alliance to provide information, guidance, and access to resources that will help encourage / promote the employment of persons with disabilities. The Alliance will ensure that SHRM and ODEP stakeholders collaborate in this national effort.
'In today's workplaces, HR professionals are helping to make diversity an important strategic business advantage," said Susan R. Meisinger, SPHR, president and CEO of SHRM. "As part our ongoing commitment to promote career opportunities for persons with disabilities, SHRM is proud to partner with ODEP."
The new relationship between SHRM and ODEP will target areas in training and education, outreach and communication, technical assistance, and promote a national dialogue. The partnership will also provide the recruitment, hiring, and advancement information through various educational, access and research activities.
The Alliance was announced today at the second information exchange called the New Freedom Initiative Circle of Champions. The event, which was jointly sponsored by SHRM and ODEP, was in concert with National Disability Employment Awareness Month.
SHRM realizes the importance of establishing public-private partnerships to increase the hiring and promotion of people with disabilities, and looks forward to working with ODEP.
