How do we promote that we want to hire employees with disabilities?
To promote/advertise that you are actively recruiting employees with disabilities there are 3 things you must do. 1) Make sure that your website demonstrates that you are interested in hiring. You may have an employee group you can share, or stories about those who already work with you who have disabilities, or different ways you interview based on ability etc. 2) Reach out to local agencies who source talented and skilled jobseekers who have disabilities. 3) Ready your HR department by looking over your accommodations process, interview processes and make sure they are trained on how to demonstrate that your company is open to making reasonable accommodations.
Just stating that you are EEOC compliant will not do. You must go the extra mile to recruit the best and brightest in general. Now you must go the extra mile to recruit the best and brightest people who have employees.
