September is Disability Employment Month!
Did you know hiring people with disabilities is good for business? It really is!
Businesses in our community know how challenging it is to find and keep good employees. People with disabilities represent an important employee talent pool that is largely untapped.
One of our in-house Job Developers recorded a Zoom interview with two of our employers who have hired individuals with diverse abilities. The employers shared with our staff how these individuals fit into their work culture with ease, how seamless the process has been and how it has benefitted their businesses. You can watch the video here: Employer Panel / Disability Employment Month 2021. Many thanks to Bridget McCauley of Pacific Brimm and Jennifer Wensley of Primal Sisters Enterprises for their willingness to participate.
