City of Temecula Mayor Mike Naggar Hosts Inclusive Workforce Luncheon on Tuesday, April 23, 2019

The City of Temecula will host the Mayor’s Inclusive Workforce Luncheon, Making Success Accessible To All, on Tuesday, April 23, 2019 from 11:30 am – 1:30 pm at the Temecula Conference Center (41000 Main Street).  The business community is encouraged to partner with the City of Temecula to improve employment outcomes for individuals with disabilities.

Mayor Mike Naggar stated, “I am very passionate about creating and improving services and opportunities for individuals with unique abilities.  In that effort, I invite our business community throughout the region to join us for this initiative to promote positive employment outcomes by encouraging employers and others to recognize the value and talent individuals with disabilities bring to the workplace.”

The objective of the luncheon is for businesses to learn some of the key benefits of hiring, retaining, and advancing people with disabilities.  The knowledge, skills, and abilities employees bring to work each day are by far the assets that yield the most output over the long term.  Whether good economic times or bad, organizations able to identify and recognize talent are most likely to succeed. Businesses that are inclusive of people with disabilities (in recruitment, retention, and advancement) benefit from a wider pool of talent, skills, and creative business solutions.  Additionally, work environments that are flexible and open to the talents of all qualified individuals, including those with disabilities, actually promote workplace success for everyone.
