“Hiring persons with disabilities is not that much different from hiring other employees: you focus on ability and find the best person for the job.”

Good planning and preparation can help you create a more diverse and inclusive workplace. With COVID-19 our processes and protocols for recruiting, hiring, and training employees might have changed. For example, you might have to do your interview via video call. But, there are resources that can help.

Alis provides some great advice on communicating, recruiting, hiring, accommodating, and retaining employees with disabilities. You can also find links to inclusive workplace tools, and financial support to help increase accessibility to your place of work.
