Looking For Talented Employees?
We Can Help
National studies show that people with disabilities make excellent employees. They provide qualities that employers seek, including adaptability and resourcefulness. Disability is also diversity, and therefore a component of workplace equity and inclusion.
But not all employers know how to effectively recruit and retain such individuals.
VR Nevada, a division of the Department of Employment, Training & Rehabilitation, makes it simple. We connect employers with reliable and qualified employees who can help drive business success.
We provide one-on-one counseling and customized employment plans to help Nevadans realize their employment goals.
