The One More Way Collaborative
One More Way™ is an ‘open source’ employment initiative that makes information regarding Job Seekers with disabilities, and the programs that support them, available for use by hiring managers in virtually any industry across the country. We bring everyone together to overcome employment obstacles, share opportunities, and create new connections where none have been established.
The One More Way collaborative serves as a forum for all parties involved in the area of disability and employment to come together to do together what we cannot do alone. As an open sourced, membership project, we reach small business as well as large private and government hiring managers. By including veterans and professionals with acquired disabilities, our project reaches deep into America’s largest pool of untapped talent.
As a leading expert in the areas of disability and employment practices, The Sierra Group has developed a hands-on training suite that leads to certified disability recruiter (CDR) credentialing.
The recruitment and hiring of people with disabilities goes beyond regulatory compliance; it’s a skill and expertise essential to all businesses wanting to stay competitive. We know because we’ve advised companies for 25 years on the best methodologies, techniques and current requirements.
The 10-module course program was created from our clients’ most requested areas of education: COMPLIANCE, FINDING TALENT, ETIQUETTE, ACCESSIBILITY, TEAM INTEGRATION, THE APPLICATION AND INTERVIEW PHASES, CONTINUOUS LEARNING, COMMUNITY IMMERSION, & TALENT ATTRACTION.
Classes start in January 2017 – Limited enrollment/Early Bird discounts
