Today e-Stewards announced their new program ADVANCE+. The initiative is a workforce development program created to employ people with autism and other disabilities. The ADVANCE+ program is designed to help e-Stewards solve critical business labor problems while helping their communities solve a critical and growing social issue.
Liquid Technology was one of the few companies selected to participate in the inaugural 2020 class of ADVANCE+. “Liquid Technology is delighted to be chosen to participate in the e-Stewards ADVANCE+ program. Being able to provide employment opportunities to this worthy community enables us to meet a business need while simultaneously supporting our company values,” explained Karen Giambrone, Liquid Technology’s HR Director.
Only nine companies were chosen to participate in the program. The recyclers were selected by a panel of third-party disability experts. Each company will receive training and accompanying tools, covering employee sourcing and integration, outreach, and messaging. James Emmett and Company will provide the participants with training.
