Consider participating in Community Based Work Assessments! (CBWA)
Are you struggling to find a qualified talent pool or have few candidates to choose from?  Help increase interest and build the talent pipeline in your industry sector by hosting a Community Based Work Assessment (CBWA). A CBWA is an opportunity for your business to be an ambassador.  You invite an individual with a disability into your place of business to learn what work in your sector is like.  They will perform a combination of work tasks with the oversight of one of AHEDD’s certified Employment Specialists, who possess Act 34 and State Police clearances.  There is no increased risk to the employer, as they are covered by AHEDD’s liability policy. There are no fees to participate, and the individual receives no payment as they are simply in training to learn about specific jobs. While these experiences are not interviews, you are providing an introduction to your industry sector, and in some instances, just may encourage a job seeker to pursue your open positions.
