Business Services Brochure


The Commission for the Blind offers business a variety of free services, including:


Worksite Analysis / Worksite Accommodations Assessment
Our professional consultants are available to review and adapt worksites to optimize them for use by employees who are blind or low vision. In most cases, our staff can find a solution to any barrier presented at a worksite to assist Oregonians with vision loss in gaining/retaining employment and to insure that our employers are equipped with qualified employees who have the tools they need to be productive on the job.
 
Employee Recruitment
We connect businesses with qualified applicants and we connect our clients with exceptional business throughout Oregon.  We are always looking for new businesses who would like to work with us to insure qualified Oregonians with vision loss are able to acquire and retain employment.  If you would like to become a part of our network of exemplary businesses seeking to employ Oregonians with vision loss, please contact us.
 


 

Businesses as Partners

Our partnering businesses provide us information regarding economic issues related to particular industries, current hiring practices, and employment opportunities.  Employers throughout Oregon also set the tone for best practices around diversity and inclusion in the workforce.  OCB would like to recognize all of the businesses that have hired, promoted and retained qualified employment candidates over the years.  We could not do the important work we do for our clients each day without you!
