As we enter the month of November, we focus on a variety of diversity hiring initiatives that you may currently be embarking on, including hiring disabled workers and those in the veteran community. These two sectors of the job market face challenges in finding work, but have also have advantages with programs tailored to their specific needs. Programs such as the Veterans Opportunity to Work Act of 2011 (VOW), which helps alleviate roadblocks veterans may encounter seeking gainful employment after they leave the military.
In our article, Veterans and Unemployment, we take a look at the state of veteran’s employment and the programs that can help them transition from military service to the civilian workforce. When it comes to civilian jobs, why consider someone who served in the military community? Read our article, The Value of Hiring Veterans, as we state the case for how hiring veterans can bring you a group of workers with unique skills, including high discipline, specialized understanding of new technologies, and a leadership ability that is beyond reproach.
Another sector of the diversity community we examine this month are disabled Americans. In our article, Helping the Disabled Get Back to Work, we focus on the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), as well as all the issues associated with hiring those in the disabled community.
