Working from home has increased 115% and people with disabilities remain an untapped market of talent.
“Remote Work: Creating an Inclusive & Diversified Remote Workforce Employing People with Disabilities,” is a three-part series from the Michigan Disability Action Council, MDAC, and an initiative of the Michigan Diversity Education Center, MiDEC.
“More than ever before, businesses need to retain the best-of-the-best, and this includes persons with disabilities. A remote workforce helps to create an inclusive and welcoming environment, where everyone can come as they are and receive a fair and equitable salary,” said Michigan Diversity Education Center President and CEO Tedi Parsons.
“Benefits of a Remote Workforce” will take place Thursday, June 4 from 10 a.m. to noon and will explore opportunities and provide best practices for a successful remote work experience that benefits both employers and the employees.
“Remote Workforce Accommodations” will outline employer requirements under the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) to accommodate employees and how this applies to a remote workforce. It takes place Thursday, June 18 from 10 a.m. to noon.
“Tools for a Successful Remote Workforce” happens August 6 from 10 a.m. to noon and offers a panel legal and human resource experts and employers who will provide insights, tools and best practices for creating, enhancing and implementing a strong remote workforce.
The series is complimentary, but tax-deductible donations are appreciated and will be used for future programming.
