#InclusionWorks is this year's theme for recognizing the contributions of people with disabilities in the workplace, in observation of National Disability Employment Awareness Month (NDEAM). Employers and HR professionals can take advantage of resources available from the U.S. Department of Labor (DOL) and its Office of Disability Employment Policy (ODEP). SHRM certificants have an opportunity to promote a diverse and inclusive workplace, pursuant to the Global & Cultural Effectiveness competency.
Today's employers need a workforce that can adapt to different situations and circumstances—which is something that people with disabilities do every day. In the workplace, the resourcefulness of these employees can translate into innovative ideas and fresh approaches to confronting challenges and achieving success. In addition, research shows that clients and consumers look favorably on organizations that employ people with disabilities.
The roles of SHRM-CP and SHRM-SCP credential holders in the employment of people with disabilities relate to several HR functional areas, including U.S. Employment Law & Regulations, Diversity & Inclusion, Talent Acquisition, and Employee & Labor Relations, and to most of the behavioral competencies but especially Communication, Relationship Management, Consultation and Ethical Practice.
