Join the inclusive employment movement!
22% of the Canadian population (15 years and older) self-identify as having a disability and experience barriers in their workplace and community.* In Newfoundland and Labrador, this represents close to 114,500 individuals in our province – a significant employee talent pool and market potential that is largely untapped!
* According to the Statistics Canada, Canadian Survey of Disability, conducted in 2017
TechnipFMC was introduced to InclusionNL through industry and they were able to increase our awareness on the barriers that persons with disabilities face when trying to obtain gainful employment. With this information, our company had the opportunity to work with them. InclusionNL provided advice, education and support through the whole process of identifying and placement of an employee. This partnership has proven beneficial to our Company and for our very dedicated employee. I look forward to working with InclusionNL in the future.
