Employer Testimonials

Mama Stortini’s

Once we started the process, I was pleasantly surprised at the support that the Trillium delivered in the form of orientation, training, and ongoing follow up. The two employees we have through Trillium fill a time-slot that is hard to staff and the jobs they do are important to our success. So, it was a great service for us. This process aligns great with our Values. By giving Trillium a chance you will not regret it, I promise that.

South Hill Mall

We really enjoy having a diverse working environment and believe that it leads to a more cohesive team. Trillium is great to work with because they come in to learn the job before the new employee starts. This resulted in better training support for managers and the new employee. They keep a good flow of communication with us and offer resources to make sure we feel it’s a successful placement.

Working with Trillium was a match made in heaven. There has never been a moment where I have regretted my decision giving Phillip and Ian a chance. I have noticed the more comfortable they feel with the environment and the team the more effort is put forth to succeed. Working with the Trillium team we consider them a part of the Mod Squad. Due to this great foundation Ian and Phillip were able to succeed at their jobs. Give it a chance, remember we are all here to succeed.


Hop Jack’s Restaurant, Bonney Lake

Absolutely a business should hire someone through Trillium.  Our experience is that it brings the team together and involves us in our community.

White River Children’s Academy, Enumclaw

Over the past six years working with Trillium I have found it has been very helpful to have job coaches stop in or email to check in on our employees. Sometimes they come to us with questions or ideas…their support helps me address issues that benefit our entire staff.

Our employee provides hard work, dedication, and a sense of humor that is unmatched.

We have been utilizing staffing provided by Trillium and have had a fantastic experience. We have been lucky to have an employee taking charge of the cleaning duties in our showroom, office spaces, restrooms and staff areas. The shine of the showroom speaks for itself!

Ali is one of our most reliable and friendly employees. Ali is someone we can count on, her task here at Central Market is a huge contribution to our team. We all look forward to seeing Ali come in because she lightens our work load, and our mood!

Wheaton Way Walgreens

Working with Trillium has been a great help in managing my store. The consultants not only support the employee but us the employer as well. Nick has been a long term employee who is reliable and efficient. He comes in, no questions asked and goes straight to work. He knows what needs to get done and is on a mission to get it finished. I wish all my employees were as focused as Nick.

Adison is a vital and valued member of the DDA Kitsap FSO team. His day to day work directly impacts and supports case resource managers to ensure quality services and outcomes occur for the clients and families we serve across Kitsap County.

His employment consultant has been a resource for me as well, assisting with developing strategies to improve my supervisory supports to Adison.

System Three Resins, Auburn

While we initially hired through Trillium to give back to the community, we are reaping the benefits of a valued employee. Trillium walks alongside System Three and our employee making sure that the relationship is working for all parties.

Monica’s Waterfront Bakery & Café

The Trillium team is great at finding creative solutions and keeping us all actively participating in the conversation. Their patience with their clients, the love that they clearly have for their work, and their dedication to keeping our relationship positive and productive are admirable. Our customers come to us for an experience, and those who encounter Rachel generally feel that she is a wonderful part of that experience. She is exuberant and boisterous, generous and welcoming, and really good at hospitality, without knowing what that is. Adding this diversity to our workforce is entirely in alignment with our values and help us serve our community better.

Trillium has made it so simple to create positions or fill existing roles with all kinds of people with diverse abilities. We are a better organization now, with more tools and knowledge since Brandi and Trillium have become a part of our team.

East Port Orchard Elementary School

I am so fortunate to have Adam work in our library. He comes in every morning and checks in books I don’t have time to get to while I am teaching. At times when it looks like everything is done, he finds things such as cleaning tables, dusting, and sharpening pencils. His help enables me to work on lesson planning, finding materials for teachers, and developing our collection and maker space. I don’t want to imagine our library without him.

Adessa Shields

Domino’s Pizza

Crystal was very energetic and willing to learn new things. She quickly caught on to the tasks we assigned her and was soon working with little to no supervision. As things get busy, it was nice to know that her job coach was there to assist her. Trillium provides a great service, a medium between prospective employers and developmentally disabled adults who are fully capable of working but need a little assistance along the way. I think Trillium does a fine job at prepping them for the work force.

Chris Smith

Pita Pit

We’re a team here and Colleen is just part of the team. We all work together to make things go smoothly. I liked how Trillium helped set everything up, especially the timer for breaks, the visuals for safety, and how they set Colleen up to be independent.

Hazel Dell

South Sound Cinema 10

As a business manager for over twenty years, I have worked with multiple employment services to assist in the hiring process. None have impressed me more with their drive and dedication to their clients than the consultants of Trillium Employment Services. My recent new hire, Noah, approached me through Trillium and has rapidly become one of my most invaluable team members. His consultants have assisted Noah and my management team in every way they can to ensure a smooth, positive transition for both. I could not be more pleased with Noah’s performance and the outstanding continued support we have received from the wonderful people at Trillium.

Reuban is a wonderful employee. What I appreciate about him is his strong foundation of skills. He is methodical and he produces quality work. He leads by example and teammates pick up on his lead. He often sets the standard for staff to get back to basics and complete the job with precision.

Sentinel Pest Control

Danny has been an amazing addition to the Sentinel team. He fits our culture perfectly as he is full of energy, enthusiasm, and jokes. At first, I thought we could have a positive impact on a young man’s life but quickly came to learn that Danny is the one having a positive impact on us. Our staff embraced him right away and look forward to the days Danny works.

We had many questions at the beginning and even some hesitations, but the folks at Trillium were phenomenal with the support they provided. Trillium’s employment Consultant, Danielle, has always been quick to answer any questions for us and walked us through the entire set up process. As our relationship with Danny grows, I know that Danielle and the rest of the Trillium team will continue to help in any way possible.

As a business owner, it’s awesome to have the capacity to impact the community. I would recommend that every organization with the ability to hire through Trillium jump at the chance! Our motto here at Sentinel is “Because Taking Care Of People Matters!” Just when I thought we had done something to help take care of someone else, I look back and realize that we are the lucky ones. Thank you Trillium and thank you, Danny!!

Salon Ina

“Our employee Deanna is a delight and a valuable asset to our team. Deanna helps us with all the backroom responsibilities so we stay on time with our guests. She also helps keep the salon floor clean.

The most valuable support Trillium provided was walking Deanna through each task to success. Jacob answered any questions that I had and offered suggestions on ways for our team to communicate effectively with Deanna.

Deanna is a rock start at our salon. Guests are very fond of her and having her as a staff member has opened the door of communication for our guests who have family members with disabilities.

We believe in giving an opportunity and growing together to work smarter, not harder.”


Luanne Rogers

Seattle’s Favorite

“In May of 2015 we were introduced to Matthew as a potential fit for the repackaging line. We are happy to say 4+ years later he absolutely was the right choice! Matthew not only works the line, he also helps in the training of his new coworkers. Over the last 2-years he has been training and working in production, packaging, and some warehouse support. Matthew is eager to learn new things and takes a lot of pride in his work. One unique aspect of working with Trillium is that they not only support their client, but they make a point to visit with our company and the employee regularly. This is a very valuable relationship in the beginning of any training program, and they always see everything through until the end and the goal has been met. Based on our experience with Trillium, we believe that every company has a position that would be a wonderful fit for an adult with disabilities and would benefit from this program. The effect on the culture in our company has surprised us. Not only our staff but our vendors love that Seattle’s Favorite has this program in place and we hope to continue and grow it.”

Mama Stortini’s

“Craig and Rachel fill a time slot that is hard to staff. It is hard to hire for a 2-3 hour shift. The jobs that they do are important to our success. Rachel makes sure that every one of our tables and menus are clean and sanitized each day. She also dusts and polices the parking lot twice a week. She rolls to go silverware each day. Craig washes dishes at lunch. The servers had to do this job in the past. They are very grateful that they do not have that anymore. The support that is most valuable from Trillium is the ongoing communication with management as well as with Craig and Rachel. The staff love Craig and Rachel. This process is good for the soul of Mama Stortini’s. I was surprised most by how fast Craig and Rachel made a connection with the crew. I was also happy with the speed at which they learned the tasks. This process aligns great with our Values. One of our core values is ‘we are a leader and valuable member of the community.’ You will not regret it, I promise that.”

Fairfield by Marriott

“Joshua has been a part of our Fairfield family for over four years and brings so much joy to our team. We all look forward to receiving his enthusiastic greeting each morning and he is always eager to learn a new task or help a fellow team member. We couldn’t imagine our hotel without him. It is truly an honor to partner with Trillium and everyone should have a Joshua!”

Brooke Bourn, Hotel Manager

Latte Da Coffeehouse & Wine Bar

“When we were first approached by Trillium, we were hesitant to take on the added challenge; we are a faced-paced neighborhood coffeehouse and we demand a lot of our employees. As soon as we met Grant and Donna, we knew we had made the right choice. Trillium made it easy to set Grant up for success and were there with us every step of the way. Grant is hard working and is an absolute joy to have working with us, every shift is brighter with him around. We consider the Trillium staff part of our team as well; they are dedicated to what they do and made the transition smooth and easy. Working with Trillium has been an easy and pain-free process, and I would recommend hiring through Trillium any day. “

Alexandra Mackey, General Manager

Kitsap County

“Trillium offers so much support in the onboarding process as well as ongoing support to both the employee and staff, that it helps to alleviate any concerns or hesitations. They truly partner with the employee and the employer to make sure all questions are being answered and concerns are addressed. The reaction has been overwhelmingly positive. Daniele knows every person in this building by name, and I see all staff stopping to engage her in conversation when they see her. Staff always comment on how much she brightens their days and that they look forward to seeing her.”

Keri Sieckowski, Public Works HR Manager

Thomason Landscaping Company

“After working with Trillium and our employee Charlie for over a year. I have truly found just how much the idea that “inclusion drives innovation” really holds trueWe have found that Charlie brings a unique skill set to our team that really increases our overall efficiency and effectiveness on the job. Having Charlie perform the tasks that he is uniquely suited for actually frees up time for others to so what they are best at. We could not have accomplished this without the help and support of Trillium and their amazing team. It has truly been a joy working with Them over the past year.”

Cailen Thomason, Owner

Real Wear

“Working with Trillium has been amazing. We are so fortunate to have gained such passionate, hardworking, fun teammates. They both take so much pride in their daily tasks. The hiring process was really smooth. It was equally important to our company as well as the team at Trillium that the job placement have value and room for growth. I would suggest to anyone on the fence thinking about opening their doors to someone from Trillium to do it. You have someone there to help you every step of the way, it is not a scary or hard transition. You will not regret it.”

EB Moody, Order Management Specialist

Clark Construction, LLC – Norm L.

“We have seen a noticeable increase in the pride people take in helping clean up now. A lot of people are excited to see Ryan, not just because he is helping clean, but they seem to feel better about themselves when they get a chance to work around Ryan and Erik. We have experienced happier subcontractors, a cleaner work place, and increased overall pride in what we do as a result  of joining Trillium.”

Norm Landry

Clark Construction, LLC – Jim T.

“Ryan’s time with Clark Construction in the field with our crews and subcontractor crews is part of life not seen and appreciated by most in the construction industry. Our employee Ryan has shown that all people can contribute to the success of a company and the improvement of life. Seeing the enjoyment that Ryan has and expresses in the tasks he performs, to have the personal satisfaction of helping another person, to allow members of our community that work in the construction industry to see anyone can make a valuable contribution are all benefits we have experienced as a result of hiring an employee through Trillium.”
