Vocational rehabilitation counselors (VRCs) play an essential role in facilitating reasonable accommodation outcomes between job-seekers/employees and employers. In individual cases, the VRC can help build the job-seeker/employee’s confidence in requesting reasonable accommodation. For employers making commitments toward more diverse and inclusive workplaces, the VRC can serve as a collaborative partner to meet those goals.
Part II of this two-part webinar will cover examples and case studies showing how the VRC can maximize successful outcomes (e.g., number of 26 closures) by collaborating with applicants/employees and employers. Building relationships with your clients and employers may not only pay off in numbers—you may find yourself with more energy at the end of every work day!
