Business Relations Team


The Business Relations team works throughout the state to raise awareness of OOD and our mission with employer partners to promote and support the hiring of individuals with disabilities. Through OOD's network of employer partners, OOD Business Relations Specialists (BRS) identify job opportunities that match our job seekers' skill sets and experience, and also provide services and resources that promote an inclusive and diverse work environment. If you are an employer looking to diversify and strengthen your workforce through the inclusion of people with disabilities, please contact the OOD BRS in your area to schedule a meeting.
