The Labor Department is giving your agency some help in recruiting and keeping workers with disabilities.

It’s a five-step online toolkit with tips for everything from creating a welcoming environment to do’s and don’ts for interviews.

The president has ordered agencies to hire 100,000 people with disabilities by 2015.

Kathy Martinez, assistant secretary of Labor for Disability Employment Policy, discussed how your agency can take advantage of the toolkit.
