As we begin 2023, the team at The Able Trust would like to wish you all a very Happy New Year!
I would also like to take a moment to reflect on 2022, particularly the opportunities to meet with employers around Florida and hear their questions about disability employment.
During one of these meetings, we sat down with members of the Southwest Regional Manufacturers Association and the Sarasota-Manatee Manufacturers Association. We appreciate the time they took to meet with us and there were a number of participants who were interested in hiring Floridians with disabilities but were not sure where to start, and they had questions they weren't sure about asking.
Creating room for an open and frank conversation is an important first step to employing job seekers with disabilities. We understand that if an employer is unfamiliar with hiring people with disabilities, they will have questions.
Our goal is to provide that opportunity where employers can be open about their concerns. If you are interested in hiring persons with disabilities and you have questions, we would be glad to have that first phone call. Please feel free to reach out to me directly at Allison@abletrust.org to start the conversation.
