Plan For 2014 With Our Corporate Assessment Tool

#SPRINGBOARD’S #CORPORATE #DISABILIBTY #ASSESSMENT TOOL

Whether your company is a #US #Federal #Contractor, working to comply with the new Rules impacting the employment of #individuals #with #disabilities or your company is conducting business planning for its’ next fiscal year, this is an ideal time to evaluate your organization’s practices relative to mainstreaming disability in your #workforce, #workplace and #marketplace.

In order to help you get started, Springboard has created a checklist; a disability assessment tool, to help you and your team self-assess where you are and where you want to be relative to this most important work.

Complete the attached checklist then call Springboard to understand how your results stack up against today’s legislative environment relative to the mitigation of risk, the competitive landscape relative to today’s leading best practice companies and most importantly, compared to how you want to be recognized by candidates, employees and consumers with disabilities (inclusive of service-disabled veterans and adults with age-related disabilities) and those who have dependents with #special #needs.

Whether you want to know how you stack up against your competition, you are seeking guidance on a particular issue, you want assistance in planning your 2014 strategy or you are ready to launch an initiative, Springboard can help. Call or email #Belinda #Moore at Springboard today (973-813-7260 x109 or Belinda@consultspringboard.com)  to schedule a phone meeting with #Nadine #Vogel, Springboard’s CEO.
