People with disabilities comprise more than 600 million worldwide. While some are successfully employed and fully included in society, as a group, they face disproportionate poverty and unemployment.
National data verifies that individuals with disabilities are less likely to have access to education after high school, job training, and employment of any kind. When they do work, they are more likely to be underemployed, to earn less money, to experience less job security, and to have fewer chances for advancement.
Redwood is committed to changing these circumstances.
Employment Services provides a comprehensive range of services to help people gain and retain sustainable employment. It all starts with career exploration followed by skills training, job development, and coaching. Employment advocacy includes employer education, technical support, job carving, and other supports to enhance job retention. Redwood also offers a growing, internationally accredited Computer Learning Center that helps people develop transferable computer and employability skills before entering the job market.
In today’s global economy, managing diversity is a major factor in a company’s efficiency, productivity and overall business success. Many multinational companies and small and medium businesses alike have discovered the potential of people with disabilities to make significant contributions to the workplace. The Dupont Corporation was one of the first companies to measure the performance of its employees with disabilities. Dupont reported in the Equal to the Task II publication that its employees with disabilities performed on par or better than nondisabled staff with regard to attendance, safety, and overall job performance.
