MaxAbility Quarterly Network Meeting – 8/18/21
Recognizing and Implementing a Request for Reasonable Accommodations
Our key takeaways from the meeting included:
- The best place to start is asking employees what they need regarding reasonable accommodations. Employees have lived experience and can work with their employer to find creative solutions.
- A welcoming environment where employees feel supported sets the stage for interactive conversations to happen.
- During new employee training, it is important to introduce new tasks one at a time and use a layered approach. This helps ALL employees to be successful.
