National Disability Employment Awareness Month (NDEAM) is observed each October and serves to celebrate workers with disabilities while also educating the world on the value of a diverse and inclusive workforce.
The theme for 2019 is “The Right Talent, Right Now!” Throughout the month we’ll be celebrating the essential role that people with disabilities play in America’s economic success.
National Disability Employment Awareness Month is led by the U.S. Department of Labor’s Office of Disability Employment Policy, but its true spirit lies in the many observances held at the grassroots level across the nation every year. Employers of all sizes and in all industries are encouraged to participate in NDEAM.
“We are excited to see so many new avenues opening up for work-at-home jobs through NTI@Home and across the nation for individuals with disabilities, “said NTI’s Chief Operating Officer Alan Hubbard. “Our ability to work with so many supportive employers are key. Now we need the people to fill the roles we are actively recruiting for. Every day, we see the talent that individuals with disabilities add to our workforce, but this is the time of year when we want to spotlight their value across the United States and our economy.”
A non-profit organization, NTI@Home helps American with disabilities, who are looking to back to the workforce. NTI@Home’s goal is to actively fill more than 600 open work from home jobs using individuals with disabilities across the United States this year.
“We have jobs,” said Hubbard. “Staying true to our mission, we now need a multitude of qualified people to fill the roles.” NTI@Home offers free work training and providing a job coach to mentor registrants helps guide people successfully back into the workplace.
If you have a disability, you can be the Right Talent, Right now.
Hubbard encourages “anyone looking for a part-time or full-time remote position to register http://disability.one/NDEAM19NTI.”
