Disability Recruitment & Retention

Successful recruitment, training, and retention of people with disabilities is an emerging area of focus in workforce development. As businesses compete for talent, they are eager to identify resources for disability recruitment. At Dirkse, we help to successfully tap into the local talent pool by connecting employers with job seekers and by identifying strategies that lead to success.

Dirkse also specializes in creating supported employment programs focused on increasing employment opportunities for individuals who experience intellectual and developmental disabilities. We currently support over 70 employees with intellectual/developmental disabilities and their employers throughout the Portland Metro area.

Because we had support personnel from Dirkse, our daughter was able to find and keep her job. Without this service, she could not have had and continue to have a successful vocational experience.
