LEARN AT YOUR DESK!
Janet D. Fiore, The Sierra Group
Janet Fiore, CEO of the Sierra Group and founder of the OMW collaborative interviews special guest experts from across the country, and from within her very own organization in order to share information as well as hands on experiences regarding real world employment, accommodation and financial benefits in a manner that brings each topic to life for our Teleseminar attendees:
“Your teleseminar was such a great means to gain expertise from practitioners- it was much more than a policy overview, you provided facts, resources and examples”
Janet’s 20 year history working in the area of disability, accommodation and diverse hiring matters has provided her with an array of expertise, stories, friends and collaborators from grassroots organizations to nationally known federal agencies, who share our mission. We are pleased to bring you a bit of our insight, by inviting you to sign up for one or more of our 2011 Learn at Your Desk Teleseminars!
Our 2011 Learn At Your Desk seminars offer CEU’s for professionals, and will focus around our most sought after areas of interest – Compliance, Access to talent and jobs; and Incentives.

Now Microsoft Wins with Accessible Recruiting
The Sierra Group thanks Suzanne Robitaille of www.abledbody.com for this article summarizing a few of the highlights from our teleseminar on "Accessible Recruiting, Part I".
Hiring a diverse workforce has many benefits, such as giving a company a more multicultural perspective that can enhance their product offerings. When hiring a candidate with a disability, however, there are a few extra steps a company can take to make sure the experience is accessible – and successful — for everyone.

Why should you attend? Sharing information and connections is what we do – it’s our way of being ‘one more way’ to connect Job Seekers with disabilities, including veterans, with jobs across the country. The One More Way collaborative is drawing on more than one million job seekers, hiring organizations and voc rehab/agency/service providers who are already connected with The Sierra Group.
Our Presenters are practitioners! One More Way Teleseminars are presented and or facilitated by board members of The Sierra Group Foundation, industry acclaimed consultants from The Sierra Group, Inc. and our special guest experts.
Presenters for the One More Way Teleseminars are Leaders in the areas of disability and employment in America. Because The Sierra Group participates in the nation’s most noteworthy governmental and scientific research studies, and helps to shape and champion new legislation in the area of disability and employment, the perspectives and information shared during each 60 minute Teleseminar is both relevant and timely. Combining this ‘inside knowledge’ with two decades of hands-on experience in accommodating workers with disabilities, Sierra Teleseminar participants report that they learn facts, statistics, tested strategies, and practical tips from real world experiences of HOW the world of work can and does include people of all abilities.
