How Nonprofits Can Use Reddit

Amid all the bad stuff, you'll find some ridiculously generous human beings on Reddit. I'll admit it: when people have asked me how brands could engage effectively on Reddit , the super-popular link-sharing social network, I've usually rolled my eyes and said, "They can't.". In light of the success of that event, people are asking once again if brands and nonprofits can use Reddit effectively. What's wrong with Reddit. Annie Lynsen. Director of Awesomeness.

Digg This?

Easier to determine–and something I can now instruct you to do for yourself–is to learn the difference between Digg , Reddit , Facebook , Twitter , and StumbleUpon. After all, it takes work to gain the status you need on a site like Digg or Reddit to get your submissions noticed. People who submit links to Digg, Reddit, or one of the other commonly used social networks likely already have a method of doing this, and an icon on your pages is unlikely to help them do so.

4 Myths About Hiring People with Disabilities

Vertex Systems

The SocialPath The Vertex Systems Newsletter Skip to content Home ← Tips for a Successful Software Implementation Capacity Building with Training Teams → 4 Myths About Hiring People with Disabilities Posted on March 8, 2011 by vertex | Leave a comment There are many misconceptions about hiring those with disabilities. It’s one of the main reasons why the unemployment rate for those with disabilities is consistently higher than those without. Most of our clients have vocational rehabilitation programs with employment services for people with developmental, intellectual and/or physical disabilities and we hear how difficult it can be for their counselors to place them. I recently read an article in the Grand Forks Herald about this problem and it had a list of myths and misconceptions about hiring people with disabilities, from Mark Landa, a business specialist with North Dakota’s Division of Vocational Rehabilitation office in Grand Forks. Here are the 4 myths he lists: People with disabilities don’t want to work. Not true, Landa said. Not only do people with disabilities want to work, he said, they also rival others with their job performance ratings and absentee rates — and they’re more loyal. The Americans with Disabilities Act mandates hiring people with disabilities and makes firing them impossible. “If they’re qualified to do the job, and they’re not going to cost you a lot of extra money, then you’re supposed to hire them—if they’re more qualified than someone else,” Landa said. “And the ADA says, if they can’t do the job, you get rid of them just like anybody else.” People with disabilities are expensive as employees. Most reasonable accommodations for people with disability are inexpensive, according to Landa. “Over half of them cost little or nothing. It could be just as simple as adjusting a work schedule or putting a block of wood under a desk to get it at the right height,” he said. If the accommodation does come at a cost, Landa said, it’s usually less than $600. Employer insurance rates will go up if they hire someone with a disability. Workers compensation or workforce safety insurance costs relate to incidents that happen at a business. “That person has never worked there; they can’t affect the rates,” Landa said. It’s a great list and something everyone should be aware of. Pass it along to make sure more people with disabilities can get their chance to join there community and build their confidence.
