The Employability Network presents part 2 of its Employer Breakfast series, “Untapped Workforce,” tomorrow (May 16) at 7:30 a.m. at Community Living Glengarry in Alexandria.
Focusing on the benefits of hiring persons with disabilities, guest speakers will discuss “how you can create a diverse and inclusive workforce all while increasing productivity, positively impacting your bottom line, improving workplace morale and providing an opportunity to let someone’s abilities shine.”
“As an employer who is looking to hire the most qualified individual, you will want to look at the largest pool of candidates available – this will include people with disabilities,” says Peter Gray, of Performance Plus Rehabilitative Care Inc.
He provides personal employment counselling services to people with physical, psychological or developmental disabilities looking to enter the workforce. He will share his experiences while exploring the many benefits employers enjoy when hiring someone with a disability.
Also speaking will be the Community Living Glengarry team: Maurice Dupelle, Manager of Employment Connectors, Volunteers and Fundraising and Danielle Duranceau, Executive Director. “Our candidates are motivated and eager to demonstrate their capabilities. They have also proven to have longterm commitments to their employers,” says Mr. Dupelle.
