New Website to Pair Businesses with Skilled Workers with Disabilities


Nebraska Vocational Rehabilitation has launched a website to help businesses find skilled, qualified job applicants and to provide new job opportunities for people with disabilities.

"The website reflects the progressive approach wetake in building relationships with businesses to place clients of NebraskaVR," said Jim Coyle, director of employment for Nebraska VR.

He adds that with Nebraska's unemployment rate hovering at a low 3.5 percent, the organization's untapped resource of prescreened clients can be invaluable to employers.

Coyle explains that the website outlines the services available to businesses partnering with Nebraska VR to seek and hire people with disabilities, and contains comments from businesses that have found Nebraska VR to be an appropriate and effective service.

Nebraska VR is run through the state Department of Education.
