Educate Hiring Managers
Whether or not a manager is comfortable with a disability can shape the candidates experience during the interview process. Pro- viding some basic training about disability etiquette, the impact of assumptions and com- pany policies that might help a new employee with a disability feel welcome in their new role can be extremely helpful. Here are some recommendations around educating hiring managers: Ensure hiring managers understand disability etiquette to increase the comfort level of both managers and candidates. This training should include a discussion on how certain candidates may present themselves during the interview process, such as not making eye contact. Verify that hiring managers focus the interview on the candidates merits, not whether or not they have a disability. Unfounded assumptions about what a candidate with a disability can and cannot do can lead to discrimination.
