New Online Course Teaches Hiring Practices for People With Disabilities

By on July 23, 2014 in Human Resources with 0 Comments

In conjunction with an executive order issued by President Obama to facilitate hiring more federal employees with disabilities, the Office of Personnel Management has created a new online course entitled A Roadmap to Success: Hiring, Retaining and Including People with Disabilities.

The executive order and the new online training are all part of a push to make the federal government a model employer for employing people with disabilities.

The course will provide Federal employees with basic information and resources to successfully hire, retain, and advance employees with disabilities. OPM is making this course available to agencies at no cost on HR University. OPM says the training should be considered required training for human resources personnel and hiring managers.

Questions about the course should be directed to OPM’s Office of Diversity and Inclusion at disabilityemployment@opm.gov.
