Employing People With Disabilities is Smart Business.
Arc Thrift Stores is one of the state’s largest employers of people with intellectual and developmental disabilities. We do this knowing that it not only improves their lives, but the success of the businesses they work for. Employment diversity, equity, and inclusion…in both the public and private sectors…means accommodations, connections, and awareness, and it mean breaking down barriers. Employing people with IDD is smart strategy and only makes us all more successful. When employers create a culture of belonging, they gain competent, dependable employees and help workers with disabilities to stretch their limits. The dividends that are paid back to a company – and to the community – are significant. This is something that we at Arc believe in whole-heartedly!
