Our Abilities Business Resource Group (ABRG) aims to support and empower people who are differently abled by creating a barrier-free environment. We want all Team Members to reach their full personal and professional potential. We also support advocates, friends, and family members of those with different abilities.
Giant Eagle has a history of hiring Team Members who are differently abled. 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 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 Team Members who are differently abled.
Some of our principle partners include:
- Blind and Vision Rehabilitation Services, Pittsburgh
- ACHIEVA, Pittsburgh
- New Avenues to Independence, Cleveland
- Goodwill, Columbus
To date, we have hired more than 250 Team Members as a result of these liaisons and specialists, and we are planning for many more!
