Carl Capato, GettingHired's Senior Vice President, stated, "National Disability Employment Awareness Month is a perfect time for everyone to focus on improving employment opportunities for people with disabilities. This large segment of the population, which is greatly under-represented in the workforce, is actually a source of the most motivated, productive and loyal employees available. Employers concerned about accessing the talents and skills required by their companies in today's highly competitive economy are well-advised to proactively reach out to people with disabilities as an integral part of their recruiting process. GettingHired.Com is at the forefront of helping to level the playing field for people with disabilities by providing a fully accessible, easy-to-use and free resource for them to connect with disability-friendly employers. We hope everyone takes a few minutes to read this truly special edition of the 'The BUZZz.'"
