The Business Relations team with the Utah State Office of Rehabilitation (USOR) would like to invite you to participate in our upcoming events. These events are great opportunities to begin or continue your partnership with the USOR. They also make great additions to Federal 503 Affirmative Action Plans. 

We will be holding our next Workshop on Hiring and Retaining Individuals with Disabilities on March 14, 2017 at DSBVI (Division of Services for the Blind and Visually Impaired). This workshop is designed to provide information on hiring and retaining individuals with disabilities. Current issues surrounding disability and employment will be discussed. Lunch will be provided with an opportunity to speak with other business representatives and professionals in the disability field. There is no fee to participate. If you have previously participated in the workshop, we have also added two additional afternoon workshops. You can attend one or both as they will be offered twice. The workshops will be Getting More Applicants: Job Descriptions and Case Studies in Success. 

Additionally, the Work Ability Career Exploration and Job Fair will be on April 11, 2017. This job fair is an excellent opportunity to market your business and open positions to individuals with disabilities who are ready, willing and able to work. The career exploration component allows you to participate even if you do not have current positions available. The information fair will allow the job fair participants to gather information on how to better prepare to apply with your business in the future. As in the past, we will offer workshops that both business partners and job seekers can attend. The workshops include: online applications, business partner panel, answering tough interview questions, and SSI/SSDI & working. Lunch will be provided for participating business partners and there is no fee to participate. 

If you have questions about any of these events feel free to contact Leah Lobato, Director, Governor’s Committee on Employment of Disabilities & Business Relations at (801) 887-9538.
