As hiring managers, business owners and Human Resources professionals we are forever seeking that elusive “good hire.” The changing demographics of the United States including our aging workforce and the retirement of the baby boomer generation make finding qualified job seekers even more difficult as with the shrinkage of the available talent. Hiring “smart” has become an even more important part of building and maintaining your business’ competitive edge.
Businesses have regularly employed a variety of tests to screen prospective job candidates for desired personality and native ability. The Travelers is one of many businesses which have discovered the many benefits of expanding their available talent pool through the recruitment of diverse job candidates including individuals with disabilities. Through the Travelers Autism Hiring Initiative, they have taken the practice of matching talent to the job to the next level by creating a program that will ensure that they can hire the most qualified job seekers with and without disabilities.
