Recruiting: Workers with Disabilities: Where can I find information about employers that have had successful experiences hiring people with disabilities?

May 24, 2016

The U.S. Business Leadership Network (USBLN) is the national business organization currently representing 50 affiliates 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 BLN provides 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 each state can be found on the State Liaisons section of the ODEP web site.
