Powell’s Supermarket, in partnership with Atlantic Grocery Distributors Ltd., on behalf of the Powell Group of Companies, is this year’s recipient of Mariner Resource Opportunities Network’s (MRON)Employer of Merit Award.
This award recognizes employers who have made an outstanding contribution to the increased employment of persons with development disabilities throughout the Baccalieu Trail.
MRON Inc.’s Supported Employment Services Annual Appreciation Night, held November 24th, was a time to celebrate clients, co-workers, and employers who have made 2016 a year of success for job placements for individuals with intellectual disabilities.
Research shows that high-performance organizations, like the Powell Group of Companies, are 37% more likely to hire people with intellectual disabilities because they see the talent and skill matching potential.
Supported employment partnerships such as MRON help employers match the right candidate to the right job and provide support every step of the way.
