ORS has a specialized unit, the Business Engagement Specialist Team (BEST), which consists of a team of experienced professionals, who market ORS’s services to the business community by educating businesses of the role of ORS and supporting their staffing needs, screening and identifying qualified job applicants, dispel myths around employing individuals with disabilities through education, and educating Vocational Rehabilitation Counselors and job seekers about labor market demand. These services are at no cost to you.
People with disabilities are an untapped source of talented, reliable and hard-working employees. Hundreds of Rhode Island businesses have enriched their workforces by hiring people with disabilities.
Our workforce development staff work closely with private-sector businesses, business groups and industry organizations to understand and address their current and future workforce needs.
Let the Office of Rehabilitation Services be your resource for qualified workers. ORS works with each job seeker to identify their strengths that qualify them for a particular job.
