Accessibility Partners was featured in a recent article in print and online from Workforce Magazine about job searching with a disability.
Sharon Rosenblatt, director of communications at Accessibility Partners, said that after being diagnosed with post-traumatic stress disorder, her company allowed her to dictate her own hours and telework. “The best solution to my workplace problems due to my disability is the one that costs the least: a flexible attitude,” said Rosenblatt. Her ideal workplace is one that empowers the worker without taking the workplace for a hit. She recommends workplaces dictate work parameters and deadlines, but have flexibility with working hours and location. “It’s proven to improve the mental health of workers and increase retention, including me.”
