Vocational Rehabilitation (VR) Services is committed to helping you.

We want to help you reach your diversity and inclusion business goals. We do this by using a dual-customer approach, treating both job candidates and potential employers as our customers. 

This approach provides the following benefits to you and your business:

  • Access to a pool of qualified applicants and the support services provided by the public VR system and our partners,
  • Access to local, statewide, and national employment opportunities and career development resources, and
  • Sharing statewide and national employment resources, best practices, and business connections.

Business Engagement Partnership

Vocational Rehabilitation Services is now a division of Iowa Workforce Development (IWD), and we work closely with IWD's Business Engagement Division to learn the needs of various employers and ensure full support for the successful outcomes of workers with disabilities. Services in coordination with business engagement include ADA consultation, accommodations support, disability awareness and sensitivity training, job analysis, training on tax incentives, retention services and more.
