Manpower offers their Access2Ability to transition people with disabilities into sustainable employment with leading employers nationwide.
Initially launched in San Jose, Calif., the program works together in partnership with community organizations TransAccess, Project HIRED and the California State Department of Rehabilitation. Manpower's Access2Ability program has already enlisted several companies to commit to hiring individuals with disabilities, including Abbott and SVTC Technologies. Access2Ability is ManpowerGroup's national disability employment program. We collaborate with employers, state and federal agencies, professional associations and community-based organizations to recruit talented people with disabilities, including veterans. With a focus on your specific talent resourcing needs we create targeted, local recruitment strategies to identify and place qualified candidates - those with the skills and dedication to support your business objectives.
ManpowerGroup's commitment to people with disabilities has been at the forefront of our workforce development for many years. Access2Ability focuses on the tremendous potential and ability of veterans and people with disabilities.
