GENESEE COUNTY CHAMBER OF COMMERCE TO HOLD HIRING SOMEONE WITH A DISABILITY WORKSHOP
Written by WBTA STAFF on November 8, 2019
“Universal Hiring Practices: Hiring Someone with a Disability” will be the subject of the Genesee County Chamber of Commerce’s latest business workshop on November 13.
The Chamber has partnered with the Arc of Genesee Orleans to provide training on the benefits of hiring a person with a disability. The workshop will be held at the newly-renovated GO TO Hub at Arc of Genesee Orleans, 64 Walnut St., Batavia.
“It is well known that finding and retaining employees is a problem for employers here in Genesee County,” said tom Turnbull, President of the Genesee County Chamber of Commerce. “Unemployment is low and the pool of capable workers is shrinking. To meet these hiring needs, local businesses need to explore new and diverse options that are available here in our local communities.”
“Hiring a person with a disability is an option employers sometimes overlook but would be wise to consider. This pool of diverse employees will provide a highly productive, community focused, dedicated group of new hires to your employee base.”
The workshop is scheduled to start at 8 a.m. and should last approximately one hour. This event is free for Chamber and Downtown Batavia Business Improvement District members. There is a $10 charge for non-members. To register, contact Kelly Bermingham at the Chamber by phone at 585-343-7440 or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
