Over the past five years, we have built successful partnerships with non-profit organizations dedicated to inclusive hiring through Goodbye Graffiti™, and now through – Goodbye Garbage™.
One of these partnerships is with posAbilities Employment Service, who join us in assisting people with diverse abilities to find and sustain paid work. Together we have successfully transitioned Adam and many others who have a variety of skill sets onto our teams.
We start off by looking at job fit, making sure there’s a good match between the candidate’s skills and abilities, and the work we offer. With guidance and support, we create a smooth onboarding experience, and develop a productive, long-term relationship. We gain a loyal, hard-working and much valued teammate who is able to thrive in our values-driven organization. With loyalty comes great morale and lower turnover. Savings to our recruitment and training budgets contributes to our ability to be a living wage employer.
We have worked closely with posAbilities to collaborate and discuss what our role is as an employer, and how we can be as inclusive and supportive as possible when hiring.
We believe everyone who wants to work and has skills to offer, deserves a chance to show us what they can do. We want to be part of the solution toward helping people overcome previously held societal barriers or biases. These active efforts have made an incredibly positive impact on our team and have truly enriched our company culture.
