TMP Worldwide knows that our nation has no shortage of talent among people with disabilities. Many of these individuals, although highly qualified and willing to work, remain unemployed. At the same time, tens of thousands of retirement-eligible federal workers are poised to leave government service in the next few years. In response to these startling facts, TMP has released a new white paper, "Hiring and Retaining People with Disabilities." In the discussion, authors John Bersentes and Mark Havard take a careful look at this dual challenge. Among their suggestions: "Ramping up efforts to recruit and integrate talented individuals with disabilities will help federal agencies take some of the sting out of the looming retirement crisis."
Bersentes and Havard support their argument and offer both a resource guide and a step-by-step process to aid government agencies in reaching out to this woefully underutilized — and potentially game-changing – labor force. To learn more about this TMP white paper and receive a free copy of "Hiring and Retaining People with Disabilities," click here. Coinciding with the new white paper is a three-part webinar series, which focuses on the best practices and hiring solutions for growing agencies within the government and public service industries.
