“Many people don’t realize that inaccessible technology is preventing people with disabilities from applying for and interviewing for jobs. Employers as a result are unaware of potentially great hires,” said Deputy Secretary of Labor Chris Lu. “TalentWorks shows you how to ensure that your organization’s virtual door is open to everyone, laying the groundwork for a diverse, more inclusive workforce.”
The tool provides general background on accessibility and eRecruiting, as well as practical tip sheets for making online job applications, digital interviews, pre-employment tests, and resume upload programs accessible. Funded by the U.S. Department of Labor's Office of Disability Employment Policy, PEAT fosters collaboration and action around accessible technology in the workplace.
