Joint governement and academic portal assists HR hiring of employees with disabilities

by Sabrina I. Pacifici on April 24, 2012

FCW: “An interactive online portal has spawned new hope for people with disabilities exploring a career in the federal government — and for managers looking to recruit them. Launched in September 2011 in response to a directive that requires agencies to boost their efforts to hire employees with disabilities, connects more than 400 federal human resource professionals, disability program managers and selective placement program coordinators to share policies and best practices around hiring, retention and advancement of people with disabilities in federal government. Now that it’s been in operation for more than six months, its creators — Cornell University and the Labor Department — are taking stock of its performance and planning the next phase.”
