Sean Casey runs the Georgia Vocational Rehabilitation Agency.
Casey’s organization—he never refers to it as an agency—helps prepare some of Georgia’s most vulnerable citizens, those with a disability, to thrive in the workplace.
They do this for free.
“If you work with us and are able to place clients with you, I don’t send you a bill,” Casey said. “We provide that service for free.”
Most of the heavy lifting within the Workforce Division is done by the Local Workforce Development Areas around the state.
Georgia’s economy is humming along, and with unemployment just below five percent, some agencies might sit back and take in the success. The Workforce Division isn’t one of them.
Deputy Commissioner Ben Hames has said when unemployment gets low the division’s work is ever more important. For businesses in 2018 it all comes down to one thing: talent.
