Employment allows people to actively participate in society, yielding a sense of purpose and fulfilment.
Employment can provide a stimulating environment to learn new transferable skills.
People seek employment also because it’s the primary way to earn money. A stable income leads to sustainable livelihoods, plus it is a necessary prerequisite to enjoy life’s pleasures.
As everyone else, people with Intellectual Disabilities (ID) aspire to meaningfully participate in community and are motivated to work.
Managers reasonably expect that all employees play a part in bettering their business in some way. We know that employees with ID can undoubtedly contribute to achieving this goal!
We take May 1st (Labor Day) as a chance to remind you that the work of people with ID is #valueable and needs to be recognised and encouraged.
