    October is Disability Employment Awareness Month

    October is designated as National Disability Employment Awareness Month. It is a time to raise public awareness about disability employment issues and celebrate the many and varied contributions of people with disabilities.

    This month, the Colorado Department of Labor and Employment (CDLE) and its Division of Vocational Rehabilitation (DVR) will honor the achievements of several workers with disabilities as well as celebrate businesses and advocates who are committed to increasing the employment opportunities of individuals with disabilities. Nominations for the Shining Stars of VR awards are being accepted through October 13.

    Across Colorado, too many workers with proven skills are currently left out of the workplace. As Colorado's leading placement organization for people with disabilities, the Division of Vocational Rehabilitation is working to change this by bridging talent and ability so companies and employees succeed.

    Colorado offers a strong, diverse workforce you may not even know about. These men and women have a range of skills and abilities, and they could really help your business grow - if you only knew where to find them.

    We are committed to helping our employer partners find candidates who are skilled, loyal, and committed to your success. Even after placement, employers and employees get ongoing support from our professional staff, including job training, guidance on the ADA regulations, and information on disability and employment guidelines. We can also help with financial incentives and facilitation of tax credits.
