Nearly all businesses compete on customer experience, yet there’s a talent shortage – a lack of qualified candidates who can be trusted to solve your customer’s problems.
At the same time, studies show that greater diversity in the workforce can increase company performance, employee retention and candidate attraction.
With Career Launch @ Perkins and our network of partners – across industries including healthcare, hospitality, telecom, retail, financial services, higher education, e-commerce and more – we are bridging the gap between these two realities.
Our program connects companies like yours with motivated, career-track job seekers, all of whom are blind or visually impaired – and all rigorously trained specifically to elevate your customers’ experience. They arrive ready to contribute, equipped with hands-on experience and industry training. And above all, when you partner with Career Launch, you open your business to candidates in search of not just a job, but a long-term career.
Our partners are industry leaders. They prioritize the customer experience and they recognize the importance of diversity and inclusion in the workplace.
Here’s how you and your company can get involved:
