Goodwill of Southwestern Pennsylvania chose Giant Eagle as a "2021 Power of Work Award" winner in the Hire Category, which honors businesses that are opening their doors and improving the lives of people who are differently abled and/or face other challenges by offering them work or work-related experiences.Recently, we hired nine Goodwill candidates from six Goodwill programs. One of the hires was a participant in Goodwill's UPMC Project SEARCH program who was hired into a position in the floral department. As she learned the job it became evident that, due to her height, some of the tasks posed safety risks to her. We identified other tasks for her to do that suited her friendly, outgoing personality while allowing her to continue doing some of the original tasks that she enjoyed and could do safely. She’s been successful in her new position with these accomodations!
