Management of Employer Collaboration with Public Vocational Rehabilitation Agencies for the Rehabilitation Services Administration

In an effort to improve employer collaborations with public vocational rehabilitation (VR) agencies, New Editions conceived and implemented a new approach to employer outreach. This new approach involved designing updated educational materials for employers about recruiting, hiring, retaining and promoting individuals with disabilities. New Editions also convened forums for employers and VR counselors to provide them with first-hand information about employment needs in targeted high-growth industries, including banking/finance, service/hospitality, science/technology, and healthcare. Products included new promotional brochures, a revised employer guide, and a CD-ROM featuring highlights of the employer forums.
