Kansas group aims to boost hiring of disabled people

KSAL StaffAugust 25, 2013

A newly created group aims to encourage employers to hire and retain workers with disabilities.

The Wichita Eagle reports that for Dave Phillips, that goal is both a personal and professional endeavor.

Phillips is the chairman of the Business Leadership Network of Sedgwick County. He is also is the director of restaurant marketing for Sasnak Management, the parent of Carlos O’Kelly’s restaurants. The company has agreed to be the start-up group’s lead employer.

Phillips says his son deals with developmental disabilities and has benefited from wonderful employers.

The group’s inaugural event Thursday is a luncheon featuring a presentation on providing employment to people with autism. Representatives from at least 10 major employers are expected to attend.
