For many years, individuals with disabilities have found jobs through programs that gave them work experience but weren’t necessarily competitive in terms of benefits, compensation and the opportunity to grow in a career.
At Partners HealthCare, we’re focused on taking those opportunities to the next level by creating a more integrated workforce in which employees with disabilities have as much access to competitive jobs as the rest of their colleagues.
Beyond being “the right thing to do,” having an integrated workforce makes good business sense. It always helps us as health care providers to have a work force that reflects the communities we serve. It allows us to have a richer understanding of each other and also maximize the talents we bring to caring for our patients.
