Employers of people with disabilities do not hire their employees because of their disability. Rather, they are hired because of their abilities. They know that it is just a good business practice. One reason for this recognition is that the disability employment program providing the assistance may have established a special relationship between the employer and the employee. More than likely the agency program has promoted the idea of hiring an employee with a disability and has defined ways that will help the employer in their business.
The relationships built within the disability employment program may support the company to facilitate the interviewing, hiring and job training processes. Job coaching by a professional disability employment training specialist can help an employee learn the tasks quickly while assisting the employer with the training responsibilities. Providing disability employer and employee information related to Americans with Disabilities Act, performing a job task analysis or offering employee training could prove to be invaluable to the relationship with prospective employers.
