From the Office of Disability Employment Policy June 6, 2014 News Brief:
The Office of Disability Employment Policy’s (ODEP) mission has long focused on encouraging private sector employers to hire more people with disabilities. The “Employer Engagement Strategy: Workforce Inclusion” white paper presents a new employer outreach approach developed during the course of ODEP’s Business Case for Hiring People with Disabilities research. This approach is based on research conducted by Social Dynamics, LLC, the Altarum Institute, and a research team from the Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania led by Dr. Peter Cappelli, the George W. Taylor Professor of Management and Director of Wharton’s Center for Human Resources. This paper describes the findings that have led to this position, their implications for ODEP and its partners, and recommendations for future actions.
