The unemployment rate for people with disabilities is alarmingly high. Although these people offer a great pool of talent, they remain untapped and detached from the mainstream workforce.
“A Difference of Ability” examines the daily challenges facing people with disabilities and reveals the reasons why jobseekers and employers experience difficulty connecting and how that can change.
The road to employment can be tough, but many successful relationships have been forged between jobseekers and employers. People who have found success offer power insights, practical solutions and strategies for improving the employment situation in today’s labour market.
