Topic: So You Did Not Reach 7%…Now What?
Facilitators: Katherine McCary & Martha Artiles, C5 Consulting LLC
When: June 18th, 2:00 pm to 3:30 pm EDT
Where: WebEx Online Workshop
Section 503 regulations require Federal Government Contractors to make good faith efforts to employ at least 7% of their workforce with IWD (Individual with Disability) across all job groups and types. To capture this, invitations to self-identify are offered in pre and post offer and every 5 years employees are invited to self-identify. Although the form is simple, getting candidates and employees to disclose is difficult. Of the many challenges, the most significant is creating a culture of inclusion in which employees feel safe, respected, and valued resulting in an increased number of employees feeling comfortable enough to self-identify.
The online workshop will provide the following learning objectives:
Hear how to gain buy-in from your key leadership to spearhead the development of a results- oriented holistic inclusion strategy in which compliance with OFCCP regulations is an outcome, but not the primary goal.
Build a disability inclusion culture that encourages engagement of all employees by leveraging Talent Acquisition, Employee Resource Groups (ERG’s), Accommodation Process/Centralized Accommodation budget and Senior Leadership.
Learn and discuss successful components of an internal self-identification campaign
