As a Business Services Consultant with the Department of Workforce Development, Division of Vocational Rehabilitation (DVR), I work to maintain responsibility for facilitating the establishment of working relationships with the business community that enables DVR to continually generate solutions for area business needs and workforce challenges while also expanding competitive employment opportunities for persons with disabilities.
As a DVR BSC, I am responsible for engaging in outreach to Wisconsin businesses within the area, requiring the learning of business needs and challenges, informing businesses about the opportunity to connect to and benefit from DVR talent, connecting businesses to additional workforce resources, and crafting solutions and services that meet business expectations. I am able to offer consultation, information, and support to DVR teams regarding labor markets, industry sector needs, business expectations, and employment opportunities. In partnership with businesses, I am able to forge solutions to business/workforce needs for disability-specific information and services, including areas such as the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) and strategies to enhance diversity and inclusion. The overarching purpose of DVR BSC business services is to positively impact employment of individuals with disabilities and meet WI business need for talent and other workforce solutions.
Simply, there is a team through DVR/DWD that is a resource for businesses and we can be a liaison for talent to meet your workforce needs.
