Company Culture Building – Flex HR Takes On Top Golf

This September Flex HR was lucky to have our affiliate partners at Ameritas, Stadion, and Netchex sponsor this fun event. Flex HR employees got to bring their whole family and enjoy the afternoon at Top Golf.

National Disability Employment Awareness Month is October

Take the time in your organization to commemorate employees with disabilities.

Across the Nation, American employees with disabilities are vital to our workplace and economy. It’s more important than ever to accentuate equal opportunities for all people. Flex HR has seen and encouraged HR departments to take extreme measures to ensure policies are in place to allow for the advancement of diversity, equity, inclusion, and accessibility (DEIA) in the workplace.

The U.S. celebrates National Disability Employment Awareness Month (NDEAM) throughout the month of October each year. The theme is selected by the U.S. Department of Labor (DOL). This year, the NDEAM theme is Disability: Part of the Equity Equation, which recognizes the vital role persons with disabilities bring to workforce diversity and inclusion, both in the public and private sector.”

There is so much buzz about Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI) in the workplace, but what about disabled persons and their accessibility (or DEIA)? The goal of putting DEIA initiatives into place is to value all individuals in a company, giving them the opportunity to show their strengths, but also ensuring they are given the tools they need to succeed.

Employers should verify their company handbook is updated to include policies and best practices for employees with disabilities to be given the capabilities needed to fully participate at work. And with the increase of employees working remotely, companies should focus on disability inclusivity to drive motivation and retention.
