Recruiting people with disabilities is an important part of our work at the IRS. Not just because it’s the law, but because we believe in the abilities of all people.
This month marks the 24th National Disability Employment Awareness Month. This event is in an opportunity to celebrate the contributions of employees with disabilities while continuing to educate the public about issues related to disability and employment.
At the IRS, our goal goes beyond just hiring people with disabilities. We want to create an inclusive environment that meets their needs and gives them the opportunity to build a successful and rewarding career. Aside from NDEAM, The Americans with Disabilities Act and recent executive orders bring the topic of disability employment to the forefront.
As part of our ongoing commitment to be an employer of choice for persons with disabilities, we established the IRS Disability Office. The office is dedicated to creating a fully accessible work environment for our employees with disabilities.
How does your organization celebrate the contributions of disabled employees?
