Ready and Able: Executive Summary

Friday, April 1, 2011

To support its work, the NTAR Leadership Center conducted a national research study on employer and market-driven initiatives to recruit, hire, train, and retain people with disabilities entitled, “Ready and Able: Addressing Labor Market Needs and Building Productive Careers for People with Disabilities – Models for Innovation.” Using a case-study approach, researchers selected 13 diverse examples of partnerships from around the nation and, over the course of six months interviewed and visited leaders and practitioners at the heart of these business-public collaborations. The goal of this research was to identify successful elements of these strategies and offer lessons that can be learned by employers and employer organizations; workforce development and disability service organizations; and federal, state, and local policymakers.
