This 3-part webinar series will provide methodologies, strategies, and tools for Employment Consultants to manage the employer engagement process to achieve stronger employer relationships. This workshop is intended to promote coordination among Employment Consultants who work with local employers to offer consistent, quality employment services. The information in this webinar series is based on the U.S. Dept. of Labor Office on Disability and Employment Policy’s (ODEP) Employer Economic Impact Study. This national study provided employers’ perspectives on the benefits and economic impact of employment services including customized employment when hiring job candidates with disabilities.
Part 2: Approaching Employers and Developing Long Term Partnerships
This webinar will provide employer perspectives on how employment programs and their staff can effectively develop rapport that can lead to long term partnerships.

The following webinar objectives will be covered:
1. Approaching Employers Confidently
2. Conducting Informational Interviews and Determining Labor Needs
