How to Develop Employment Partnerships in IDD
Connecting to Local Businesses and Creating Shared Value
Job seekers with intellectual and developmental disabilities (IDD) are an overlooked and underappreciated talent pool. For organizations hoping to develop employment opportunities for the people they serve, one of the biggest hurdles is building partnerships with businesses.
Join us for our webinar to learn strategies for increasing opportunities for the people you serve. Stephane Leblois, program manager for The Arc@Work, will explain the program’s approach to supporting corporations to develop, implement and maintain neurodiversity hiring initiatives.
In this webinar, you will learn:
- How to identify and connect with possible employment partners
- What is involved in educating local employers about the value that individuals with IDD can bring to their businesses
- Why training fellow employees and managers is critical to the employment success of an individual you support
