A superior resource for hiring and supporting special-needs workers
June 8, 2010
By: Rolf Dobelli of "getAbstract.com"
A recent Northeastern University study reports that by 2018 companies will have more jobs than people to fill them. In fact, some 36 million U.S. employees will retire by 2014, leaving a huge gap in the labor pool. Nadine O. Vogel, a consultant on special-needs workforce issues and the mother of two daughters with special needs, suggests that employers can address this gap by hiring more people with disabilities. That category includes older workers, as well as the disabled and their caregivers, particularly parents of special-needs children. Writing with Cindy Brown, Vogel provides an abundant, well-rounded resource of valuable information to help employers develop and support a special-needs workforce. She starts by explaining the benefits of hiring special-needs employees and works through the entire process, from recruiting and training to accommodating individual needs. getAbstract finds that she does a thorough job of presenting the practical steps companies should take to create an inclusive culture. Her conversational, if not polished, style invites you to, well, dive in and make waves with your special-needs workforce.

What an eye opener!

Dive In really opened my eyes on a subject that has been sorely neglected for far too long. It not only provides insights into the profitability, productivity, and potential of the special needs population, it provides clear - and often simple - examples of how to create a dynamic, diverse and all-inclusive work environment. It should be required reading for everyone in business.

This is a must read!

I have just completed reading this book in manuscript form. It is fabulous and a must read for anyone who manages others but really for everyone, everywhere. Afterall, people with disabilities or those who have children with disabilities are everywhere.
