Manufacturers Finding New Sources of Talent
November 01, 2018 / Elizabeth Bresnan
Still keeping manufacturers up at night is the search for talent; especially workers with specialized skills. This need has driven companies to look outside the regular channels for workers.
One organization that is helping to fill that gap is Ability Beyond. The group is a non-profit organization headquartered in Bethel, CT, and Chappaqua, N.Y., that provides a wide range of services for over 3,000 people with a disability. The group has a 50-year track record of success in job training and placement.
While many companies have not looked in this direction before, talent with disabilities has a wide range of education, degrees, professional certifications, work experience, and skills.
