Upcoming Webinar on Retaining Valued Employees with Disabilities: October 19, 2022

In retaining workers across the employment spectrum, including those with disabilities, performance coaching and management are an important component. With effective performance management, employees can better understand their job duties and move ahead in their careers. In recognizing National Disabilities Employment Awareness (NDEAM), EARN (the Employer Assistance and Resource Network on Disability Inclusion) is holding a webinar on October 19, 2022 from 2 to 3 pm ET to help employers and managers “make disability part of the equity equation by learning how to ensure that workers with disabilities can succeed on the job.” While performance management benefits the ongoing work and development of new skills of employees, some managers may feel uncomfortable or fear they are in violation of disability-related laws or regulations and may not be having productive conversations with those with disabilities or health conditions. A panel of experts in the field of Human Resources will share strategies that are effective for managers to use to assist, empower, and have fruitful coaching and performance dialogues. Topics being covered range from how to address performance concerns when you know or suspect an employee has a disability to ensuring that individuals with disabilities are not “unfairly disadvantaged” in the performance appraisal and development process to how coaching and effective performance management can result in improved employee engagement and retention outcomes and more.
