DORS Can Help You Build Your Business

​How Can DORS Work For Your Business?

DORS helps Maryland businesses recruit and keep qualified, valuable employees. Last year, DORS matched 2,559 qualified individuals to job openings in Maryland’s businesses.

Studies show that more than 84% of these employees will still be working a year from now – the highest retention rate of any Maryland workforce program.

DORS can also serve as a resource on disability and employment matters, including:

  • Disability awareness training.
  • Workforce diversity and inclusion initiatives.
  • The Americans with Disabilities Act, and options and solutions for reasonable accommodations.
  • Worksite consultations to help businesses hire qualified workers and retain valued employees with disabilities.

“Employers may be hesitant that if they hire someone with a disability their business will become disabled, but it’s not true. Take a chance, it will pay off.”
