BESB: What BESB Can Do For Your Business

 

 

WHAT THE DEPARTMENT OF REHABILITATION SERVICES (DORS) CAN DO FOR YOUR BUSINESS

 

At DORS, we create partnerships with businesses. Blindness is less of a limitation than is commonly thought and DORS consumers are a significant resource of skilled employees.

    We can:

  • Refer to you pre-screened, qualified applicants that meet your job specifications

  • Provide Worker-Retention Services that evaluate and provide the necessary training and accommodations to valued employees who have experienced a vision loss

  • Offer employee awareness training that assists recruiters, management, and employees to understand legal blindness and how it is possible for a legally blind employee to succeed on the job

  • Provide on-the-job training for your new employee at no cost to you

    DORS Can Provide Employers:

  • Pre-Screened, Qualified Applicants

  • Information and Resources on Adaptive Equipment

  • Ongoing Support for the Employee

  • In-Service Training for Managers, Supervisors, and Co-Workers

    The Benefits of Hiring DORS Referrals:

  • Hiring a qualified individual who is blind or visually impaired shows your company's commitment to diversity in the workforce.  Contrary to many common beliefs, people who are legally blind can do most jobs with proper equipment and training.

  • Hiring DORS referrals means tax incentives for your business.

  • DORS can save you time. Instead of reviewing hundreds of applicants, we can refer a few qualified individuals to your business.

  • After referring a qualified applicant to you, DORS absorbs all of the costs for specific training and adaptive equipment in certain situations.
