Numerical Goal for People with Disabilities

Hiring of People with Disabilities

While the Department has no underutilization of people with disabilities, it will continue efforts toward a diversified workforce at all levels.

Therefore, the Department will continue to seek opportunities to hire people with disabilities. We will utilize our recruitment/hiring committee to discuss plans and activity toward hiring people in this demographic.

Recruitment efforts will include:

  1. Collaboration with DHS' Division of Rehabilitation Services.
  2. Member of the Disability Access Coordinator team created by the Office of the Governor to better inform agencies of the disability access.
  3. Recruit and/or hire through CMS' Successful Disability Opportunities program.
