We are proud to sponsor this important teleseminar which will help companies better understand Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) and Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) and will offer companies concrete strategies to help veterans affected by these conditions become productive and valuable members of their workforces.
This unique event is designed for HR managers and business process owners who would like answers to questions such as:
- · What do I need to know when interviewing a person with TBI or PTSD?
- · What strategies can we put in place to help ensure a smooth transition for such an individual into our workplace?
- · How do we deal with the possible concerns of workers who interact with veteran co-workers with TBI or PTSD?
- · How should we think about any possible reasonable accommodations that may need to be made for such employees and how could such accommodations support our business goals and processes?
Janet Fiore, CEO of The Sierra Group and a leading expert on issues relating to the employment of veterans with disabilities, will lead the discussion. The Sierra Group and RecruitMilitary are long-standing partners in the effort to connect opportunities with veterans with disabilities. Lisa Stern, Consultant to The US Department of Labor for America’s Heroes at Work Initiative and Meg Krause of the America’s Heroes at Work Initiative will also provide invaluable insight into TBI and PTSD to help teleseminar participants understand the truth about these conditions and dispel the many myths surrounding veterans with these conditions.
This open and informative discussion by The Sierra Group and The US Department of Labor will last 60 minutes and will be immediately followed by a brief forum during which representatives from RecruitMilitary and Carnegie Mellon, both Executive Sponsors of this event, will also share their experiences with accommodating veteran candidates and employees with TBI and PTSD.
We hope you won’t miss this important opportunity to learn more about TBI and PTSD to help both your company and veterans with these conditions. Register now!
