I don’t share many videos, but this one is definitely worth watching. It’s proof that discrimination against the disabled exists and that there are HR and recruiting professionals that help perpetuate it.
I originally saw this posted on FaceBook by The Conference Board. I was floored that instead of the HR professionals intervening and explaining that it is illegal and immoral to discriminate, they took a whole different approach. Three different pros! Unbelievable. The Conference Board then asked the question, “Do you think these were just a few bad apples, or might many HR people and recruiters privately offer similar advice to companies?”
I am always an optimist and my gut tells me they are a few bad apples. I’ve always had the opportunity to work with professionals who embrace employees with many different kinds of mental and physical disabilities. In fact, the HR and recruiting professionals I’ve worked with and that I know are the kind of people who would be appalled at the video. What do you think? Are they bad apples, or do you think many HR and recruiting pros would offer similar advice? Share in the comments.
