Manpower's Project Ability program, which places people with disabilities into high-demand jobs with employers nationwide, has expanded into the Boston market.
Manpower’s Project Ability program, a collaborative approach to place people with disabilities into high-demand jobs with employers nationwide, has expanded into the Boston market following a successful pilot in San Jose, Calif. It has already placed 115 individuals into employment in the two cities.
Plans were in place to launch Project Ability programs in Chicago and Houston in the first quarter of 2011, with an additional five markets later this year.
A key component of the program is the partnership with leading community-based organizations that have relationships with candidates having the skill sets businesses need. Through this collaboration, Manpower and its partners serve as the conduit to connect these individuals to employment opportunities. The San Jose-area community-based organizations aligned with Project Ability are Project HIRED, TransAccess, and the California State Department of Rehabilitation. The company is working with clients and employers to place another 155 people this year.
Manpower encourages interested employers to join the partnership. Companies looking to participate may contact Jan Sonneman at 408-979-6217 / firstname.lastname@example.org.
