National Retailer Partners with SourceAmerica to Hire People with Disabilities
VIENNA, VA – SourceAmerica is pleased to announce a new partnership with a major national retailer.* The company recently contracted with SourceAmerica to provide staffing for their annual holiday surge as well as regular, full-time positions in locations across the country beginning in 2017 for three years.
"We truly appreciate the fact that this company embraces what our mission has borne out over and over again – that people with disabilities have the talent and drive to make the workplace better, that the root of 'disability' is 'ability,'" said Clara Conti, vice president of Sales.
The company is one of several major employers that has recently focused hiring efforts on strengthening staffing with employees who have disabilities. SourceAmerica's network of nonprofit agencies includes more than 1,000 members. Its affiliated agencies employed more than 113,000 people with disabilities in 2015.
"SourceAmerica Staffing Services is prepared to leverage our staffing nonprofit network to fulfill these positions and provide meaningful employment to a large spectrum of people with disabilities," said Tom Granata, director of Staffing Services. "We are open to adding additional nonprofits that are interested in supporting our cause."
