Representatives from 20 employers from around the state gathered recently for a business roundtable on disability in the workplace. Alabama was one of five states – California, Maryland, Michigan, Pennsylvania being the others – to participate in the event as part of the Council for State Administrators of Vocational Rehabilitation’s strategic planning initiative, known as Vision 2020. The roundtables were designed to gather input from employers on business needs as related to vocational rehabilitation services. Employers from a range of industries, including banking, health care, government, and hospitality, were invited to the event, which was sponsored by ADRS, the Alabama Business Leadership Network, and the Alabama Industry Liaison Group.
