Community Living Glengarry offers free employer breakfast series ‘Untapped Workforce’ with focus on hiring persons with disabilities

ALEXANDRIA — The Employability Network invites the public to part two of their Employer Breakfast series Untapped Workforce. Join us on Wednesday, May 16, at 7:30 a.m. at Community Living Glengarry in Alexandria where we will focus on the benefits of hiring persons with disabilities. A line up of guest speakers will discuss how you can create a diverse and inclusive workforce all while increasing productivity, positively impacting your bottom line, improving workplace morale and providing an opportunity to let someone’s abilities shine.

“As an employer who is looking to hire the most qualified individual, you will want to look at the largest pool of candidates available – this will include people with disabilities.” Peter Gray, Performance Plus Rehabilitative Care Inc.

Gray provides personal employment counselling services to people with physical, psychological or developmental disabilities looking to enter the workforce. Gray will share his experiences while exploring the many benefits employers enjoy when hiring someone with a disability.

You will also have the opportunity to hear from the Community Living Glengarry team; Maurice Dupelle, Manager of Employment Connectors, Volunteers and Fundraising and Danielle Duranceau, Executive Director. “Our candidates are motivated and eager to demonstrate their capabilities. They have also proven to have long-term commitments to their employers” Says Dupelle.
