VR Nevada Makes It Easy To Recruit and Retain Employees With Disabilities

We’ll meet with you to determine your specific recruitment requirements and then will refer pre-screened, qualified job candidates matching those requirements. Our assistance to your company includes work-readiness skills development, customized on-the-job training strategies, guidance and technical assistance, and assessments of the need for assistive technology. We provide quality support throughout the recruiting process, as well as comprehensive follow-up services. Businesses that hire people with disabilities are eligible for tax and other credits, tax deductions, and work opportunity credits, and VR Nevada can help your company access these incentives. We also offer education and training on disability issues and workplace accessibility for your company’s management and employees.

Looking For Talented Employees?

We Can Help

National studies show that people with disabilities make excellent employees. They provide qualities that employers seek, including adaptability and resourcefulness. Disability is also diversity, and therefore a component of workplace equity and inclusion.

But not all employers know how to effectively recruit and retain such individuals.

VR Nevada, a division of the Department of Employment, Training & Rehabilitation, makes it simple. We connect employers with reliable and qualified employees who can help drive business success.

We provide one-on-one counseling and customized employment plans to help Nevadans realize their employment goals.
