Sumter Ready to Work Training: Disability Sensitivity

  • SC Works Santee-Lynches 31 East Calhoun Street Sumter, SC, 29150 (map)

Who Should Attend: Employers only!

According to the 2010 US Census, 56 million Americans have a disability and 1 in 4 South Carolinians have a disability, yet they are twice as likely to be unemployed than people without disabilities. This is despite the fact that employers consistently report a more than 80 percent positive experience with employing people with disabilities. Reports also show that 92% of the American public view companies that hire people with disabilities more favorably, and 87% prefer to give their business to companies that hire people with disabilities.

Employers, you’re invited to this FREE training on disability sensitivity and etiquette in the workplace.

This training is approved for 1 hour of SHRM and HRCI credit.
