We were honored to be included as an employer that champions hiring people with mental disabilities. We shared our personal story with the Huffington Post. Excerpt below:
“When one of her employees took a long leave for treatment at a mental health facility, Accessibility Partners Head of Business Development Dana Marlowe decided to keep the job open for her.
“She lost us money, and stressed out a lot of her fellow employees who had to pick up the slack,” Marlowe said. “This wasn’t a shining moment for our employee, but I stacked it against four years of great job performance.”
The transition was rough at times, but the employee eventually regained her normal schedule and made Marlowe happy she allowed her to stay.”
