Employer Resources: “Hiring Workers with Disabilities benefits Business, Communities”


~~“Alaska employers benefit from the collaborative efforts of several state and federal agencies that specialize in disability awareness, recruitment, and employment.  The Department of Labor and Workforce Development’s divisions of Vocational Rehabilitation and Employment and Training Services are foremost among the agencies employers partner with to learn about recruiting and employing qualified Alaskans with disabilities. Local Alaska Job Center staff will guide you as you develop your disability employment strategy and find applicants to meet your business needs.  Federal contractors in particular may benefit from this partnership by hiring people with disabilities (including veterans) as they strive to reach affirmative actions goals.”
