A Strong Commitment to Team Members Who Are Differently Abled
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 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 Team Members who are differently abled. Some of our principle partners include: Blind and Vision Rehabilitation Services and ACHIEVA in Pittsburgh; New Avenues to Independence in Cleveland, and Goodwill in 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.
Giant Eagle continually advocates for the advancement of our Team Members who are differently abled. For example, to better understand how to work with Team Members, customers and others who may be living with impaired vision, Giant Eagle held an education session for Team Members on challenges related to low vision or blindness.
In several Pittsburgh GetGo locations, we are offering competitive employment opportunities for people with more significant challenges in an effort to help them transition out of sheltered workshops.
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 Team Members who are differently abled and the many positive contributions they bring to our company and our business every day. We look forward to continuing these integral relationships.
