Creating a diverse workforce is our business every day at OPM—both throughout the Federal government and within our own agency. The President has charged us with the responsibility to help Federal agencies recruit and retain persons with disabilities in the workforce. To help us meet this responsibility and other strategic objectives, we rely on the diverse talents and perspectives of all individuals. We work to ensure that every reasonable accommodation has been met to create a comfortable work environment for all.
