A Strong Commitment to Team Members Who Are Differently Abled
Giant Eagle has a history of hiring Team Members who are differently abled intellectually, mentally or physically. In fact, for the past 30 years, we’ve been committed to, and are incredibly proud of hiring, training, and supporting these Team Members.
Our promise to provide them with meaningful roles has led us to build a network of support. Today, we have four community professionals working with us to help hire and assist a growing number of differently abled Team Members.
Some of our principle partners include: Blind and Vision Rehabilitation Service and Achieva in Pittsburgh; New Avenues to Independence in Cleveland, and Goodwill Industries in Columbus. Currently, we have more than 100 Team Members who were hired as result of these liaisons and specialists, and we are planning for many more.
Giant Eagle continually advocates for the advancement of our differently abled Team Members. For example, Giant Eagle hosted an education session on challenges related to low-vision or blindness to help us better understand how to work with Team Members, customers and others who may be living with impaired vision.
Additionally, in several Pittsburgh GetGo locations, we are offering employment opportunities for people with more significant challenges who otherwise might not have found competitive employment.
And, in October 2016, in conjunction with National Disability Employee Awareness Month, Giant Eagle and the Abilities Business Resource Group participated in National Disability Mentoring Day, which involved partnerships with several area schools. Students visited Giant Eagle locations to see what it was like to work in our stores for a day.
Giant Eagle is very grateful for our differently abled Team Members and the many positive contributions they bring to our company and our business every day. We look forward to continuing these integral relationships.
