Supported employment for individuals with intellectual or developmental disabilities (IDD) can’t happen without exemplary inclusive employers. What does it mean to be an inclusive employer? It means the organization creates and maintains a workplace environment in which every employee is treated with dignity and respect, provided opportunities for personal growth and fulfillment, and valued for their talents and skills, regardless of perceived differences like intellectual and developmental disabilities (IDD). The organization carries this mindset into its hiring practices and community involvement. They represent some the best of our communities, and we want everyone to be able to recognize them for their efforts.
This year Trillium Employment Services is providing a window decal that identifies these employers. We encourage you to provide them with your appreciation and your business. Share in the celebration with us, take a picture at one of these awesome organizations and share it with us on our social media, facebook and Twitter @trilliumservice.
